Alec really liked Bushman's DIY TT (seen at DIY page here at this site) so he made his own version of it using the platter and bearing from a Connoisseur.  The tonearm is an Origin Live OL1 (full mods) with Goldring 1042 mm cartridge.  The motor is the Origin Live Ultra motor and speed controller.  Alec says the sound he is getting goes beyond his expectations. 

Other components in this system:

Marantz PM 66 SE KI signature Integrated Amplifier

CD 63 KI signature CD player

Pro-ject phono box SE

Mission 780 SE speakers wall mounted (not in photos)

There is also a Thorens TD150 currently being upgraded/refurbished.
