        So we can play our "vinyls" on crisp clear 2 inch speakers mounted inside veneer covered MDF.

        PS...Oh, using a high quality ceramic cartridge.
        Life is analog...digital is just samples thereof

          Does anyone remember there was a vertical turntable years ago?

            Technics and Mitsubishi both made vertical 'tables back in the day. Pro-Ject produced a vertical spinner recently and mayhap currently.

          I ran into this website when looking up the cartridge that the Vert. uses.

          https://www.lpgear.com/

          They have been around for over 20 years, based outside of Las Vegas. Look at their range of turntables, cartridges, even replacement needles (stylii). They have some of the stuff that we audiophiles immediately recognize, VPI TT, Koetsu cartridges, etc. But there are huge number of different cartridges, TT, some from companies I recognize, but many from ones that I have never heard of. Most of them are in the sub basement of pricing - $25 for a cartridge, $99 for TT (sometimes including a cartridge), etc. They apparently started with selling TT belts in 1995. Huge selection of replacement needles (stylii) also. If you search by price on categories like cartridges and TT's, you don't give a full listing. For example, look at Crossley TT's - they are as cheap as $70. Audio Technica cartridges go from $23 to $5000. There is even a Crossley version of my Sound Burger portable TT (mine is actually called Mister Disc) for $89. updated with USB output and ripping software.

          My guess is that the vinyl renaissance is being fueled in large part by young people who are buying $100-$200 TT's that we have never heard of.

          Anybody dealt with these folks before?

            Well I suppose they sell online Ok--but be aware

            When I lived in Vegas, a friend of mine went to collect the cartridge he ordered at the address on the Website

            It was a private house with a little old lady who had had never heard of LP Gear!

            Some caution maybe prudent?
