  1. Haven't had the chance to hear a tangential yet... haven't heard how good my TTs are at their best yet, to tell the truth. 😄 I' m a little slow at getting things done right now...

    There is a small scandinavian TT Manufacturer called " Bergmann " Audio. Bergmann aims to develop air-bearing turntables and air-bearing tangential tone arms with the least amount of parts.





    I know it's surely a superb machine (must be for the $$$), but it looks too much like an industrial robot to me... I like my wooden plinths and metal arms and tables... It's just me rambelin´...

  3. Well, sort of. The 1218 is still on the work bench, I've been busy with other stuff. But i got a second Dual that was so cheap i couldn't pass it over. It's a 1214, that was a higher level entrance at the time.




    It plays well, it just won't turn off the motor once the record has played, have to pull the plug. So while the big brother is getting fixed, i can listen to stuff with this one and then fix this. Another plus, the mechanics on both are the same, so if i get lost i can compare to see what goes where.

    So, I'll be getting there, i guess.

    But we only had six paid holidays last time I worked in `99. Got a week more after a year and two weeks was the max from two years employed out for blue collar stuff. How many do you guys in the old Europe have?


    Happy New Year!

    You have a point there, JohnJ... I have 31 days of paid holidays now, 28 with my old employer.

    We came home from mass yesterday and opened presents.

    the living room immediately turned into LEGO madness.



    I cooked a couple ducks on the BGE for dinner.







    A year ago on Christmas we had snow and 12° weather.

    Kind of a different vibe this year.

    Good to see children interested in something other than Play Stations & X-Boxes! Every now and then i pull out my Legos as well...

  8. A bit of work done today, fixed the putty on the back-panels and worked on the grilles.


    This is what the fabric can look like, once cats have had their way...






    What to do with the remains of the old glue? Leave it, as base for the new glue, sand it of (might be tough to do...). Who has done this before, input welcome, thanks!

    André ..welcome to the TT world with an exciting vintage Dual TT, any idea which Pick Up is installed ? Looks like a Shure Cartridge M 75 or V 15 Series ? And Joe Jackson...love him, got a lot of records from him   you´ll see 😁



    Yup, M75 and this one's a Dual 1214, the 1218 is still in pieces and  being cleaned. I bought this LP a few others from a fellow member on the Dual Forum, doubles and stuff he didn' t listen to anymore.
