Best turntable to "rip" dance music with no pitch changes Reply #25 – 2010-04-24 17:04:40 Quote from: botface on 2010-04-24 15:24:46Quote from: dv1989 on 2010-04-23 23:12:18I assume that blind tests are more difficult to perform with vinyl equipment.............True, but I tried my best about 10 or 12 years ago when I had the OL structural modifications done to one of my RB300s. The differences were easy to spot.I should clarify what i meant. I was implying that the std tonearm on the 1210 was a weakness from an audiophile perspective, dont get me wrong i've had various decks and they have all sounded shite compared to the 1210's with the same mixer and carts. My 1210's have served me well and i have been very happy with the sound they have provided but now i have upgraded to serato i feel i should make the best recordings i possibly can within financial reason of course! I intend to to attempt pay for all of this buy offering a (Relatively!!) high quality vinyl recording and cleaing service to anyone interested in the london area? The guy ive got booked to fit the tonearm says that difference it makes is "pretty dramatic" and i'm pleased to hear that botface noticed some significant improvements also.I disagree with Dv1989 as a controlled test would merely be judging recordings made with and without the tonearm under identical conditions with the same track/clip...However saying that i would love to be able to post some direct comparisons but i will be changing cartridge along with the tonearm so no direct comparison can be made.
