    I got mine yesterday and I was amazed. The dynamic range and imaging were the big surprise to me. I kinda expected a little more detail. Overall this was a noticeable improvement on my vintage Marantz 6300 turntable and very modest Audio Technica cartridge. I was impressed. I have less than an hour's worth of time listening to the vinyl, so I will continue to listen and report again. I am anxious to hear the feedback from other user's. I think you will be surprised.

    Hell yeah, I'll give it a go.

    I just resurrected my old TT since I stumbled upon a milk crate full of vinyl

    that I haven't heard in 15 years.

    I would love to try the clamp. I don't have a TT so please send a TT with it so I can do a fair analysis. I have about 200 albums at my disposal here and no TT. Repeat please send TT. I gave mine away about 10 years ago (grrrrrrrrrr). If you can't send TT please through a brick at me for giving mine away.

    Thanks Ben

    I need to place a post on TTs. My budget is nill right now. so I will be looking for one of those mass produced models that just happens to be a good sounding TT on the cheap. With all those great albums it kills me not to have a TT.
    Thanks

    I have a TT, but not many albums (gave most of MINE away... toss that brick my way when you're done with it).
    Send as many albums to me as you can, and I'll let you know how they sound as I listen to them. :D :D

    Sign up guys and gals. You won't be disappointed. I was a doubter otherwise I would have bought one outright but now I'm a believer. It makes my modest tt sound fabulous. I found myself standing listening in amazement. The music jumps out at me now with crispness and precision and little or no distortion or background noise. Thanks Joe and Anthony. I plan to ship it to Dave today. Yes I will be buying one.

    I posted a pic here:

    Please add me to the list. My Dual CS 630Q seems to have given up the ghost, saddly, but I just bought a used Technics SL1210 MK2 (the quintessential DJ TT) and I am awaiting delivery. I assume the clamp will work with that table?

    If it has a spindle and a platter it will work.:D

    How exactly does the clamp "clamp" down onto the washer(s)?

    You place the shim ("washer") over the spindle, there are three different thicknesses of shims. Place an LP on the spindle overtop of the shim. Place the clamp onto the spindle on top of the record. When you turn the cap, the collet closes on the spindle and pulls on it upwards, at the same time the perimeter of the base of the clamp which has a rounded nib exerts downward force on the record label which cause the record to take the shape of the platter which causes intimate contact with the platter thus causing maximum warp removal. Clear yes?
