Garrard 301

 I know the inerwebs are filled pictures of beautiful Garrard 301's and by that standard this one is a bit pedestrian.

If you take a step back and see that it is partnered with a vacuum tube based phono stage and amplifier things get a bit more interesting

another 20 steps back reveal that this is then paired with a pair of Tannoy Westminsters in a Japanese restaurant in NYC and suddenly that first picture isn't so pedestrian any more.

Makes me really want to exit my bubble and be one of the lucky folks who gets a table during the 25% seating capacity phase of the pandemic.

Laser Zenith

 I have recently found the need to adjust Zenith by small repeatable increments and it seems that hot glueing a laser to the side of the cartridge proves to be quite effective.

 The need for this type of repeatable precision was so I can plot the change of IMD against Zenith angle and the results are telling.

If you want all of the sordid details have a look at the link below.
