I’ve embarked on the interesting project of trying to find a reasonable turntable on which to listen to all my ‘old’ vinyl lp’s – I’ve so far come up with the Stanton T.50 ( belt-drive ) and T.60 ( direct-drive ), and then the Gemini TT-01 ( belt-drive ) and TT-02 ( direct-drive ).

Seeing as I’ve had some corruption problems with ReiserFS 3, I’ve decided to move my data partitions to ext3 and I’m running 2.6.15 with Con Kolivas’ patches so let’s see…
