    I did not want to anticipate, but exactly what I thought is now visible. When the drawer is extended with the weight of the Dual tt, this construction loses its stability. I would reconsider this


    I expected as much as well, these drawers are quite flexible. But i will only fully extend them if I need to work on the TT or for changing LPs. Half-way out it´s fine.


    What exaggerates the situation is this:




    The whole rack is tilted backwards a little. After adjusting front height, I´ shure I can loose some ot the washers under the TT. 🤔

    Call me old fashioned 

    But a TT belongs on the top shelf 


    You may not believe it, but usually I sit on the floor infront of my system. So having it on the lower shelf is actually more comfortable for me. 😉


    I value Your input Guys!

  2. Execution is not perfect, but it came togehther well enough. If I pull the board all the way out it will hang quite a bit. For spinning, half way out is just fine, all out is for tinkering purposes.

    I lay for a couple seconds there, upset at what happened, realized I was NOT HURT, took the ladder up, had to straighten the bent thing, climbed right back up and got the jog done!


    Sorry but, definition of a (hardheaded) bonehead? 🤲 😉

    It wasn´t attened to have an similar experience like @Dave1291 made a couple of days ago, but as life is there are things that just happen . I had heated oil in a pan, made a glass lid on the pan, was briefly distracted and saw how strong smoke formed under the glass lid. Immediately I took the pan off the stove, took down the glass lid , by the oxygen the pan began to burn. The flames beat higher and higher. My son wanted to extinguish the fire in the pan with water, no I let that be, meanwhile the smoke detectors were already beeping in the house, panic broke out. I saw a large pillow and took this to smother the flames in the pan . That worked. Unfortunately, I got very bad burns on the right hand. We have ointments in our home pharmacy to soothe the burns. Nevertheless, I have very severe pain. But I can also use the laptop with my left hand, so I can write.




    It will be difficult for me to put on records in the coming days.


    You too George, get well soon! Gute Besserung!

  5. George, You´re right, from our vantage point it´s a joke. But if You don´t know much about TTs and just want to take a peek? Ok, I think. Not everybody will spend several 100 bucks if they don´t know if they like it.

    I certainly would not exchange my Dual, with it´s all metall mechanics, with that ikea lightweight.

    From memory

    Was she accused of plagiarism at some point


    Nothing  on the Wiki. She does sample here an there. I saw some forums where guys rant about it, I don't give it much credit though. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in Japanese industry.

  7. 80´s japanese avantgarde electronic music. Found it in a store while shuffeling through some LPs. Not bad, a little Bowie here, a little Sakamoto there, was his debut album:
