  1. oops "paradigm sub"
  2. love the turntable have the same bought used in 79 or 80 still use  in den/office set up. run with a grado gold or an AT 130/140 combo

      Thank you. I bought mine new in '79. Complete refurb last year with real walnut veneer. The photo doesn't do it justice. I'm currently using a Stanton 681EEE cartridge. I've tried a few, and I keep coming back to the 681EEE. It works very well with this turntable, and there's still a few available. I think I'll try the Ortofon 2M Bronze when it's time to replace this one.


      John Mathies did the refurb. His website is Turntable Restorations. My PL 530 is the top right here.

      use a 2m bronze on my main set up systemdrk iix  sounds good but still tuning,  way more sensitive, picks up a lot of noise, don't play a lot of vinyl  so a slow but good progression  

  3. just commenting to myself how much i like my den/office system, billd c1 m1 mkii opt 02 both by wrf (thanks) and kef 1q3 with an older paradyme sub (fine tuning the sub makes it all work)

  8. I bought a pair of AL III's about a year ago could not be happier. I think I lucked out paid $400 for them couple marks on the oak wings but both ribbons are clear with no rattles. (Many thanks again for the lead CUDA) drive them with a pair of M1.0 MK II opp002. I listen to mostly classic rock, loud have blown woofer fuse a few times........ love them they are big speakers and I think they need room ........ Would recommend to anyone .... David
