One must spend some time training them how to behave with ones toys especially those toys which do not belong to them ! I have tried this with 朋友 but no avail, it seems 朋友 just cannot keep his hands off the volume or remote control !!! @[email protected]

The Blue Onyx is an agate Onyx of blue, grey and white layers of fused quartz. Its beauty is sonically unique due to the scarceness of blue stones in nature. The Blue Lace batch was also specially selected because it is the hardest and most rigid among the onyx family, making it an exceptional cartridge housing due to its outstanding sonic qualities. Because of the limited supply of Koetsu's Blue Lace stock, they only issue two Blue Laces a year. A true audiophile statement.

I noticed the sub-chassis of the LP12 was bouncing slightly, and assumed that some visitors had tested the suspension by pushing it down. Interested to know how long it would take for the sub-chassis to stabilize, I stood there watching for over 5 mins but the sub-chassis just kept bouncing! After that I went over to check if there was a breeze, from the air-conditioning, that could keep the sub-chassis moving, but I could felt nothing!

This I guess is a totally different issue. It has to do with dynamic balance of the platter. The best one can do is to rotate the outer platter by 5 degrees at a time to have this slight rocking movement minimized. Some Thorens platters have a mark on the mating spot to ensure you have the best dynamic balance.  
 
It doesn't however have much bearing on the final sound although it does give you ease of mind.

Talking about the Linn LP12, I was at the Hong Kong HiFi show 2 or 3 years ago, when the Linn agent put a LP12 on static display on a rack in the middle of their show area with nothing else closer than about 10 feet from it.

How's the speaker connected to the system? It seems too neat to be true. @[email protected] I would love to be able to get that neat....................................... one day ^__^  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
 
The conduits for the speaker cables were installed underneath the floor, so getting speaker placement correct in the first instant was vital. These conduits are over 1 ft apart for positive and ground to ensure minimum interference according to the owner, he has found there is a bigger benefit in this than using ultra expensive cables. However there is no choice when the cables finally merge towards the terminals at the back. The living area and the whole setup is beautifully created which gets the blessing from his boss. However if you are very sharp eye you will find some serious tuning devices which are also well conceived. 8^)

Thom Mackris has a valid point here. Years ago when I lived in HK Island, I was taken aback watching the SME 3009 while it was idling. The anti-skating weight was swinging like a pendulum in the middle of the night when everything seemed at a dead rest. Something ought to be "rocking" to keep the force going unabated. I was on the 2nd floor of a 4 storey building. Can't imagine what it would be like atop a sky scraper!  
 
The sub-chassis of the Linn and Thorens are working with the same principle in mind. The whole assembly has to be kept synchronized for best results.

Then I had the chance to talk to Thom Mackris, designer of Galibier turntables, who held an opposing view. Thom believe that while it is beneficial to have a stand alone motor, having the turntable and motor on separate platform would be detrimental to the speed stability. He believes that the floor which the turntable stand sits on is always vibrating microscopically, either by the bass emitted from the speakers, or traffic outside the building, or the movement of the elevator etc. So, if the turntable and motor are on separate platforms, their movement will not be synchronize, and the tension of the belt will be changing constantly, which will cause the speed to change!  
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
 
Can you ask Thom if the MTR has an affect and if at peak rush hour the vibration is greater ? 8^)  
 
Kidding aside, its a very good point ! however, Uwe's setup is in a separate room ! away from his speakers, but of course still on the same floor. I cannot remember sadly if his turntable is also mounted to the wall @[email protected]

This is actually an interesting topic for belt drive tables! Over the years, I have always assumed that it would be better if the turntable and motors are placed on separate platforms, which should provide better isolation from the vibration of the motor.

Last year while in Germany I was exposed to the 粉紅色的頭. This turntable is made by Uwe Brettsneider. It uses Scheu parts who was a personal friend of his. The motor is mounted separately on a book shelf speaker rack similar to the ones made by Mission in the late 80's. Keeping with the German theme, the main arm is the Artemis made by another special friend of Uwe - Frank Schroeder, but this one has Harmonix tuning ! The cartridge is rather special on this arm - something I will attempt one day.  
 
The other arm is by Thomas Schick, this sports the 粉紅色的頭 ^__^

Yes Master Kong that turntable belt is made of Mylar

and now is the 粉紅色的頭. Note the special tuning !!!! If you look carefully on my own personal MIDAS paratrace I also use similar tuning ^__*
