    so my fave grab-o-rama transferred in a new manager a couple of months ago , it's all turned to crap.

    But the store that he left has taken off .... it's too far for me, but a friend does get over there.

    He grabbed the pair of 120Ti's , refoamed them and now jokes about being buried with them someday.

    Just got a call. Now he picked up a ReVox linear TT in fine shape with a V-15T4 , all RTG

    I've never been able to bring myself to trust a tangential tracking deck without professional inspection and calibration. I have a Phase Linear I've played a few times to test it, but could never bring myself to put a record on it I actually cared about.

    I've owned it for more than a decade.

    I should probably just part with it, but it feels like a bit of history (both generally speaking and personally - it was actually a gift from an ex.)

    When I look at it, I often think of it as the DeLorean of turntables: Defunct brand, very silver, very 80's, very high-tech for it's era, and likely a questionable performer without lots of maintenance and upkeep, and even then...

    I had the Pioneer version of your PL. (PL-1000) . It sounded good but was so heavy that the springs sagged and the platter would scrape on the plinth. sold it and watched it being resold multiple times on local CL.
