Oh and you mentioned MJQ and I remembered that I want to find a clean copy of Django so thanks for that!

I am going to need a turntable sometime soon, since my GF loves vinyl. The only one I have ever used is my father's vintage Acoustic Research AR-1 'The Turntable' with a Grado cartridge, its lovely mahogany base, and coupled to a massive Onkyo Integra amp and big JBL L112s. It did sound sweet.
What I'd love to do is get the components of a turntable and put them in a custom base since I am a competent woodworker, and make something really beautiful (like this one rosewood AR-1 on some website). Is that sort of thing possible? Can I buy the parts or find a decent turntable and gut it? Failing that, what is the best < $300ish turntable?
Ah, thanks. It was there some time ago that I saw a rosewood AR turntable. That's a great site. The ARs are really beautiful:
Hmm, I'll keep my eye out. How to Technics fair?
I knew about the Rega, but that Music Hall in Piano Black is very, very nice indeed. I certainly could manage the cost. I'm still kind of set on having a cocobolo turntable plinth, but I will certainly keep the Music Hall in mind.
