Hey there from NC (by way of Austin, Chicago, et al)

I've still got it, though it's on a shelf right now. Beautiful as ever, but the person from whom I bought the Grado arm that's on it used a pretty stiff wire that introduces an annoying skating force (opposed to anti-skate). And I've been intending to change the motor for a Papst that I have in a box here somewhere.

I ask because I went a very similar path with the ROK I found. Didn’t even realize it till I ran across your thread on AK.F1B41130-E660-4A2C-8B22-A77AC12DD780.jpeg

Very nice! I like the way that you've matched the arm and the plinth. What cartridges have you liked with the Grado?

@watt when did Luther build those cabinets for you? I seem to think I remember those at his house back when I first met him.

I remember listening to that Rek-o-kut around the time I got my Lenco. It was so pretty! I don't remember where we were, possibly your place in Andersonville?

2012 (so says the internet). I think he may have had a get-together at his house not long after finishing them? I liked them from the start (and what's not to like about the cabinets), but the markwart crossovers and a little stuffing made them even better, in my opinion.

Likely my place in Andersonville. I bought it from a priest at Loyola who was cleaning out the rec center basement!
