A kind of “what if?” scenario, and I’m unsure whether to do this yet but I like to have an idea just in case it happens. And this is the place. I was brought into the “proper gear” era around the early 80’s I’d had music centres, record players, midi hi fi, but while talking to a guy at work he mentioned his LP12 with about £12k of amps, speakers, arm, cartridge etc. What an idiot I thought, until I got the invite, sat in his listening chair & basically cried. In the coming years, once I could afford to jump in, I went through all combinations of Rega Planers, Arms, pre’s, mono-blocs, speakers, bi-wired, everything I could think of, but something was always missing. I think it was a suspended deck? Thinking back everything I loved had this and all my TT’s were solid plinths. Not LP12 money, but Mitchel, Roksan, Systemdek, I loved them all but kids & bills decided it wasn’t to be. So, cut to now. I’m running a Pioneer PL12 and I love it. Serviced, Suspension repaired, Ortofon 2m blue fitted and a Rega Fono in the post, it handles pretty much everything I play. If I were to get another TT do I go for a new Rega, Pro-Ject, maybe Funk Gett at a push, or look at a 30 year old which I used to drool over? Just a thought.
