    Oh yes, that's a beautiful tt Scott! The finish of the armwand looks familiar.
    Do you have a 10.5 inch arm?

    Hope not!
    Its mounted as a 9" arm @ 222mm.

    Just out of interest, where do you measure arm length from?

    yep, centre of spindle to centre of arm pivot.

    Scott the PU7 has an adjustable arm wand, as well as being able to set azimuth you can also pull arm wand in and out a little, if you move wand out and reset cart it will sit closer to the front of the headshell, but if your mounting distance is fine, and you have set geometry correct it's academic.

    Why is it mounted at 222mm? That's the pivot to spindle distance for a Rega, which has strange geometry compared to everything else. The 9" PU7 is surely to be fitted with a P to S distance of 210.4, according to Johnnies own arm chart....

    Wouldn't this difference (discrepancy?) change the final position of the cart in the headshell (and improve everything . . no end??)

    PU7 available in linn fit and geometry at 211 (210.4) for the pedants, they are also available in Rega geom at 222mm the headshells for each are at different angles AFAIK Scott's is a rega one. He needs to move the tube out a tad, but it won't sound any different unless it's not right just now.

    Got it...

    Agree with your other posts, Paul, re accuracy and paranoea of some individuals to "set up" to the Nth degree, but 11mm would have been quite a large discrepancy.

    I didn't appreciate that Johnnie did 222 mounted PU7s; ta.

    (Shouldn't you be oot yer tree by noo???)

    yea the arm length is made to measure for each customer...normally linn or rega or 12 inch geometry

    and the arm tube lenght can be pulled in and out as prof points out if needed

    Cripes don't get me started on this again!

    Scotty asked about the arm length, not the mounting distance, which is different. The arm length is arm pivot to stylus tip. The arm length includes the overhang and will be a larger figure than the pivot to spindle distance. If Scott has used the arm length as his measurement for his mounting distance, it will be wrong.

    kjoenik, stunning system and room, really beautiful.

    Havent been to active here lately. Last reply is one year old.
    Me and my family (increased by one more girl since the last time I posted, totalling four females now, including my wife (the same), boy Im outnumbered) moving to a house were Ill have my own listening room. Thats a dream come through!
    Ive also changed speakers. These are playing in a friends home now while Im moving.



    Im also waiting for a Lenco L-78 to arrive, and maybe an L-75. One, or maybe both depending on condition, will be refurbished and receive a new plinth and tonearm.

    Ill post some pics when everything is up and running, probably in two months or so.

    F*ck me they're big. Do you live by the coast by any chance? Foghorn just entered my tiny mind, lol.

    (Seriously though, I wouldn't want to be standing by that horn when you switch it on without realising one of your daughters had turned the volume full on.)

    These surely can't work without some soft furnishing or room treatments if the room is as hard as your last one?

    Yea, I DO live by the coast. When the big ships hear the music they know theyre too near...
    Better check the volume before powering up!
