Recorded on June 24, 1966.
I have a PTP Solid 9 with the Upgraded Bearing. It is set up with a
Audiomods Series Five Micrometer and a Hana SL.
Before purchasing a PTP Solid Nine, I worked out the cost of building one from scratch using the kit parts available.
My first question was how savvy am I at taking on such a task.
My second question was what level of finish I wanted the TT to have aesthetically.
My costing were approximately
PTP and Bearing £500
Donor GL75 £200-250
Plinth £ 200 - 400 ( Depending on Materials and Finishing )
Support with Electrics and Technical issues £150
With a projected build cost of about £1100 and a resale value of about
£500-600, evaluated after assessing sale histories, I felt it was better to go for a used PTP.
At the time of a sale, would a Buyer trust me as a builder, I think not, so a asking price will be dismissed by a vendor, probably looking for Parts value minus what ever suits their requirement, so a 50% reduction seems the common paid price.
I have a branded PTP TT, that is a used model when purchased, it has a healthy following, it is not subject to the critical analysis of a DIY PTP, and I am sure will only lose a small amount, if any, at the time of a resale.
With a Stand Alone Tone Arm Pod, it can quite easily function as a 9" and 12" TT.
But how does it sound?
