Congrats, those look great!

The clamps look good too. What are they?

I have a record clamp that is similar to those.
It was made in Canada by EON.
I bought it in the early 80`s

just performed the cart swap!! I noticed the denon stylus was abit bent :(

I'm gonna have to check out some vids because there's gotta be an easier way than standing on your head backwards to mount carts to this arm without a removeable headshell.... but #1 is done and she sounds sweet! :)

Cool score Bolly!

That's an odd pairing, I would think that a Denon DL-103 would be a terrible match for an Infinity Black Widow arm. Oh wait, I just realized those are 103s carts...higher compliance than the regular 103.

I'd look at putting a Jelco or the like on those tables, I have a 10" one for my Technics SP-10mk2.

Nice deck.

Careful not to overtighten the clamps. The three legs applies an uneven force, so that on thinner vinyl it is possible to warp the records.

I used to have a POD, which did that.

Now, I use the Clearaudio twister -- really good clamp.

thanks Bumpy!! I can't believe how good #1 sounds, especially for being almost 45 years old!

That Black Widow with the right cartridge is amazing. I had one once with a sonus blue.

Any super high compliance cartridge will do the trick.
