i hesitate to say much about how i came by my old broadcast turntable.
suffice to say, it was a very kind gift. i don’t want the person who gave it to me to get in trouble with his boss.
finally it is mounted in my desk, so i can actually use it. J and I did this this weekend. it’s part of my grand plan for the back bedroom.
the grand plan involves obtaining an “ART USB Phono Plus v2 USB Phono Preamp”:http://amazon.com/gp/product/B000BBGCCI/ that will translate the glorious analog of the turntable into zeros and ones that can be fed into my computer.
sweet, ain’t it? i don’t have any pictures with the turntable mounted in it, which is too bad. the turntable itself is a big solid piece of what looks to be cast aluminum.
i’ll be so very pleased when it’s all set up and working.
