Something I always wanted...

You mean there's more to HiFi than a LP12?

Something I always wanted...

Post by LD100 »

A momentary lapse of reason? Just because?
I always wanted a Koetsu cartridge and since the Lyra on my LP12 is good for another 4 or 5 years, the Technics Direct Drive was due for a new cartridge...

and I like the color...

Just got this Koetsu Urushi Gold Wajima yesterday; so far the sound is all you could ask for...after a couple of weeks it should be fully bedded down in its groove zone. :smt020
Original 1978 Fluted Afromosia LP12, Ekos 2, Lyra Kleos SL and lots of other stuff from the 70's that still work fine.

Nope, just 33 or 45 rpm...the other digits (0.0) are for pitch...

Not a bad little deck, bought it in 1978, same year as my LP12.
