  1. The belt I ordered was too slick and just spun. But Marc sent me a VPI Aries II belt that he had on hand and it works great! Milo and I started on the new stand today. Should be a few more days on that.

  5. Presumably, you guys are suggesting Baltic birch plywood, which certainly seems like a solid choice for the box itself and the shoe rack. You can also get quality plywood with even fancier wood faces depending the what you want for the finish. We used teak faced plywood for Stretch's bbq island but there is unfinished or prefinished maple and other options. Either way, you can use thin strips of matching hardwoods to trim the exposed plywood edges unless you like that look, and you can use solid harwood for the door on the microphone case.

  6. I'd say router, so that you can put a finished edge on any of the exposed pieces of wood. Which really means that you need both a router and a bunch of router bits. I'm with Naaman, baltic-birch.

  7. Going to try to make the hinged face out of strips this purple stuff. Maybe too heavy so may end up being the body.

  8. I have a Garrard 401. Stylus drag doesn't slow that sucker down. Oh - and a Thorens TD150II, and that is a pretty weak force unit. But I'm using that with a Shure V15IV with Jico stylus. Since that thing runs at 0.75g tracking, it is just fine. That feeds, via a phono stage, a BH original, with all the unobtainium silicon, and a pair of SR007. That is one of my wife-is-asleep headphone systems. Don't ask...

  10. Ah. You can still put in clean hardwood or plywood piece over the holes.

  13. I soldered the surface mount components for a Universal Signal Isolator shield for the Arduino DUE. This will allow me to control my Buffalo DAC and add a TFT screen to it as well http://www.dimdim.gr/arduino/universal-signal-isolator-shield-for-the-arduino-due/

  16. Got the re-tipped Zu DL-103 back yesterday. Today I mounted the cartridge, set the tracking force, aligned the cartridge and set azimuth and VTA. The custom belt is due on Tuesday, so I'll check the sound then. My last pieces of wood for the new stand shipped today. should be here soon. It's all coming together.

  17. Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny A genius book. I get the feeling that books as disparate as Dan Simmons' Hyperion Cantos (and Ilium / Olympos, of course), Richard Morgan's Altered Carbon trilogy, Walter Jon Williams' Aristoi, and even David Brin's Kiln People (and so many more), were directly inspired by Lord of Light.
