                        Nice gear! I'm a dyed in the wool ROCK fan with a preference for acoustic sounds and female singers.

                      Do you have two or three turntables? If three, why three?

                        I have three now. I bought the Rega when my Avid was getting the SP upgrades done to it. Added a glass platter to it and its on a wall mount, I like the way it looks. Its under some pics my wife took at abbey road studios. Not hooked up to anything.
