How many of you have more than 1 TT in a system or more than 1 arm/cartridge on a TT?

I have collected some (maybe 100?) records and have had a TT hooked up in the past, but usually not for long. This is mostly because of space limitations, but I also have some work to do on most of them. I will soon be setting up in a larger space and am really looking forward to having a TT setup again. I was also just reminded that a few of my amps/receivers have 2 phono inputs. Which got me wondering about the subject title. As always feel free to go into as much or little detail as you prefer. And I wonder who on here wins title of “most possible vinyl listening possibilities/combinations in a single system”. Thanks!

Im still confused. Ill have to do some math and hope my assumptions are correct. For one stereo system, how many different ways can you listen to dark side of the moon on vinyl?

I dont think enough info is given to answer the question as I think that is multiple systems and/or multiple preamps. If it is multiple preamps into 1 system. 🤪

sad. should be rectified.
Never will happen, I am much too lazy to get back into the entire vinyl ritual.

I have found that I get my musical enjoyment from hearing new music, or music that is new to me. The streaming services have been a godsend as I don't spend my time seeking new music to buy, only to have a couple of listens, then store it and occasionally dust it off.

The current cost of vinyl has really cut into my buying of it. Its just not worth it in most cases. But I cut through the chaff by finding new music via streaming and then if I find I'm listening to something over and over, I buy it on LP. It has to make the cut now, as I'm over spending $25 for a single listen.

To answer your questions. Not me. I have two turntables in use in two systems. One in each. Neither have multiple arms. I have one more TT which is going to be sold soon enough.

Is that what you were looking for?

Man... that makes me question putting my DP-1250 up for sale. Did you build that plinth?

- Woody
No, the plinth was thrown in with the deal when I bought the DP-80. It was a custom rather than factory job and given the way it was built etc. I'm thinking of European origin. When I got it there was only a board out back and both spots were drilled for a Denon arm. I had a place routered for a board out front and made a couple of boards from some nice curly maple a friend had kicking around. The two arms have different eff. mass and character and I'll end up running two phono pre-amps with the table. Even with the aircraft carrier of a plinth it still takes up a lot less space than two tables!

It is very nice. I'll probably still sell mine. If it was one of the Quartz Locked decks, it might stick around. But I do really like these Denon motors.

The guy I got the DP-80 from had been trying to sell the plinth separately for ages with no bites. I was a bit hesitant about buying the DP-80 and he threw in the plinth to sweeten the deal. I am pretty sure it originally had a DP-6000 in it and is older than the drive it now contains.

I've got a Nottingham Analogue Interspace heavy-platter with the dual arm pods - one has an Audiomods Series IV with a Hana SL mounted on it, while the other has a Fidelity Research FR-24 Mk2 with either a Lyra Helikon Mono or Denon DL103r, depending on what I'm listening to.

My preamp is a Yamaha C4, which has three phono inputs, which makes me think I'm somehow slacking.
