After I got my LSiM703's and hooked them up to a Dynaco type custom tube amp and tube preamp I started craving a turntable to go retro even more so and was lucky enough to find a Technics SL-1100 turntable that I'd say is a 7.5 out of 10 because of a few minor scratches and lack of being clean. I polished out the scratch in the cover and got it almost swirl free and a Sharpie made the edge scratches disappear on the edge of the recess the platter sits in.
Hopefully these photos of the TT show up here:
I heard the TT while connected to a receiver and the Shure V15 Type 3 cartridge with new stylus made the LP sound decent through a pair of old Advents.
I'm trying to stay cheap with a phono preamp and found this ART phone preamp at this link:
at Parts Express. It's $50 and was wondering if anyone knows if this will get me going with listening to my old Monkees albums for the time being?
Thanks in advance...Blake
