All this talk of turntables and two channels this weekend reminded me that I had a Technics turntable somewhere in the basement. I found it and dusted it off. Nothing special, in fact junk, but it is a Technics SL-5 with an Audio Technica TR460E/LT cartrage, all the rage back in the early 80's. I did have a pretty nice collection of vinyl in really good condition but a mishap with an electric heater my senior year at college put an end to that.
Oh well I still got way to much stuff to do for a decent system for HT to worry about a 2 channel rig.
