I had forgotten how great a phonograph record can sound when played on a good turntable with a linear tracking tonearm and a moving coil cartridge. The photo is a Thorens TD-125 MK II turntable with a Rabco SL-8e Linear Tracking Tonearm that I purchased many years ago, but has been in storage for some time. Thorens turntables are among the best and are still available. The Rabco tonearms are no longer made but are still available used on ebay and perhaps a few vintage audio websites. The Rabco tonearm is somewhat of a Rube Goldberg machine, a device that performs simple tasks in a complex manner. One of its motors lowers the tonearm on the record, another pulls the tonearm laterally across the record via a chain. They are very delicate and can be fussy. After years in storage I managed to recondition it and it works fine. In my opinion a linear tracking tonearm is the best method of playing a record because the cartridge and stylus remain on a constant tangent to the record groove.
