I don't think my Advents need them. I also don't like how most speaker stands look. I do have them sitting on top of a couple of thick text books (see that whitish strip under the speaker on the left?). So they're about 4-5 inches off the floor. I think that's all they really need.

I have thought about making some stands. They would basically just be a small open box made of some medium-quality lumber pieces, just a little smaller than the bottom of the speaker and about 4 inches tall. I'd stain them to match the speakers. For now the books work though.

So, this is how it's looks with 1 gram. I think the issue may be the my table can't handle a low-mass cart and the fact that it doesn't have tone arm height adjustment.

Hmm. Sorry about that. I didn't realize that. But actually it doesn't look that abnormal. Mine rides pretty low too. By the way, have you tried leaving the brush down? It helps with tracking, I think.

I didn't think this was a low mass cart actually. There are many much lower. I thought this was medium?

Whatever you do, hang onto the cart. If it doesn't work out on this, it could work with something you might upgrade to.

I tried the brush with 1.5, but it was about the same. I'll upload another picture with my actual camera later. (To my eye, the distance between the bottom of the cartridge and vinyl is the thickness of sheet of paper, maybe two.) I'm just concerned because with a different record (Dino Jr RI) it actually dragged once or twice.

And you can't make any adjustments to the tonearm height?

No, the tone arm assembly is solid. It has anti-skate and pressure, but no height. And I say "low-mass" because it's not the "3-5 grams" that a lot of stuff is.

I really don't want/need to spend more than $200 for a turntable for the foreseeable future, so I've been looking at the AT LP120 and it seems to have everything I now know I need.

That would be a great choice. But... do you have a reputable vintage stereo place nearby? For $200 you could get a table from the 70s that would be, like, 10 times better than anything new being made today for that price.

I'm not sure. I know of one or two places that have a small amount of vintage equipment, but it's mostly receivers.

If I knew how to properly pack and ship a table, I'd help you out by sending you one of mine. I have one or two I could stand to give up for under $100 plus shipping. Especially for an SY friend in need.

$35 to repair the Large Advent. The doctor threw in two nifty little fuse systems (3 amp fuses) to attach to the positive speaker wires, to help prevent this from happening again. Maybe these babies will be good for another 40 years.
