MRHP system(s)

Post by MRHP » Tue Feb 24, 2015 6:58 am

Since my original thread got all jacked up and most pics were lost I decided to just start a new one so here we go.
First up is my dedicated turntable system built around a late 50's vintage record cabinet. This is a work in progress and unfinished but well on its way. Deciding whether to use th CF14-LS preamp on this system at this point any suggestions welcome. Carver Black Magic #1 and #2, Baby DQ-6 compacts bi-amp capabile. Dual 5000 Turn Table yard sale find $25 dollars!!!!!!! Cut glass for the amps and turn table preamp.

Very nice set up, Eric, thanks for sharing!

Have you considered a Bill D C1 for preamp duties?
Too much to keep track of...

Thanks for redoing your system thread, Eric! :-)

I bet it sounds great when it's actually plugged in! ;)

Looks nice, I like that cabinet you are using for a turntable stand, it almost looks like it would go with a JBL Paragon.

What is your music source for this system, the turntable?

Hey Tinpan yes Im just going to use the turntable as the source for this system at least for the time being. My wife spotted the cabinet at an antique shop, they were made in the late 50's very early 60's from what we can tell. There is a small tag on the inside that says "Universal record cabinet Company".

its a victrola. my mother has one in her diningroom. my great-grandmother played it when i was a kid. we still have all of her records. great find Eric. I have no idea what it is worth....sorry/ moms still works. the cabinet is a horn that is tied into the end of the tonearm. there are shelves inside that are part of the horn that are used to store the lps. moms is cherry.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Here is the current vintage setup. Very simplistic and sound s.w.e.e.t.....20wpc of tube power and vinyl is quite relaxing after a long work day.
