Zzzzzz. Clonk zzzzzzz clonk. The arm lift
« on: November 20, 2018, 12:41:06 PM »
I know some of you listen to music that isto calm for a late night and you fall asleep. 


Then you wake up to that dreadful lead out groove clonk wondering how many hours you have worn off your multi thousand dollar stylus. 


This may be for you. 

I will be playing with a sample next week.

Me too. 

Thorens used to make a similar doohickey back in the day and I've even seen a video of a very nice one made out of brass (although that was handmade so prohibitively expensive).

It's 2018. Surely by now auto-return should be standard? It was the norm in the mid 80's already!

Great doohickey for vintage TT's though  :thumbs:

Tricky to set up and my Japanese
Is rather poor.  Played a while and got tired of the lead out of Meat is Murder and listened to some music.  Will try again.  I assume I am doing something stupid.

That would be listening to Meat Is Murder rather than The Queen Is Dead or Hatful of Hollow.  Try it with Strangeways Here We Come, always a winner!
