...on which I play my beautiful rare gems is special built from totally renovated parts of an Lenco L75 and has a newly made Ortofon RF297 tonearm with a Miyajima Lab Kotetu Mono cartridge. Sounds great. The only thing left now is to buy better speakers. The ones I have are good but I would like to purchase some bigger, better ones soon.

Beautiful turntable tonearm and plinth, congrats!!! What do you mean exactly about the tonearm being newly made? Did you rewire it or upgrade it?

Enjoy!

It's a new made replica. Here's a link to the master who made it (3rd and 4th image from the left): http://www.simplyblack.net/gallerys/gallery_tonearms/index.html

Thanks for the link, that is some great work they do. Its a great classic and a perfect match for that Lenco. I saw the same site offers a that turntable and plinth so I imagine you got the complete package right there which is great.

Do you have a second turntable with a stereo cartridge also?

Yep, I have another turntable with a stereo cartridge, but I only play and collect mono LP's, so I don't use it. Good to have though, I have some stereo records as well.
