Are they? I have about another foot or so they can be moved out. Is there a rule of thumb for distance between speaker's and or from the turntable?

 

Not necessarily a rule of thumb,but the vibrations from the speaker can/will affect playback on the turntable.

Klipsch 150m train from a shoebox sized student apartment bedroom. Great speakers. 110sw in the mail (should be here Monday.)

This is as far back as I can get for the picture.

debut carbon espirit sb (downgraded from an RP3 carbon. the belt would constantly roll off).

Never updated on this. I mean I'm sure people don't care but I enjoy having some form of catalog of my setup's evolution. It sounds as good as a sub on a mini fridge can.

hobby lobby photo boxes are a godsend for 7"s.

Was about to say. What are those, made of some old couches or something?

I wouldn't sit on them though the Electro in Electrostatic is quite big, about 10,000V

 

Quite a thing the Quad ESL57 considering they were fiirst for sale in 1957, the early ones were copper coloured, very distinctive and very sought after, a real piece of HiFi history these and something you should hear at least once, like everything good in HiFi they require a lot of careful looking after but when they are right there is nothing quite like them especially when driven with valves.

 

As it says on the Quad website The ESL was the world’s first full range, ultra low distortion electrostatic loudspeaker and set standards for accuracy and fidelity in loudspeakers that remains unsurpassed to this day. A labour of love for founder Peter Walker, the ESL-57, as it came later to be known, is still revered by audiophiles all over the world

 

Quad certainly persevered with this technology as they still make Electrostatics today http://www.quad-hifi.co.uk/product.php?cid=5

just re-arranged my setup

Turntable: Pro-ject Debut III w/ Speed Box S and Acryl-It Platter

Cartridge: Ortofon 2M Blue

Receiver: Marantz Model 2230B

Speakers: Paradigm Mini-Mk3
Tape Deck: Technics RS-631

You could benefit from an external phono preamp.

Thanks, yeah I've been thinking about one. Any recommendations that won't break the bank?

I was a fan of my Schiit Mani when I had one. Tons of cartridge loading options.

Edit: I have read some people have had issues with radio interference with them, but I had no issues.

I had a Schitt Mani and it sounded like crap in my setup. (I actually tried 2 of them) I got a whole bunch of RF feedback, picking up a local radio station clear as day. There's a thread on SHtv where others mention the same issue.

 

I eventually ended up with a Lounge Audio MK III preamp, and it blows the doors off that piece of Schitt I originally had.

Yes, it's $300, but it's well worth it! Also, the owner/designer is a member over on SHtv, so you can ask him all the questions you want. His name over there is Morinix.

I thought it was you who had the issues here. That's pretty strange, as I had no issues with one and I like 5 blocks over from a radio station.

Me and a few others over on SHtv. When I messaged Schitt about it (after trying a second unit) they told me it was news to them and a unique issue, which I know is BS because others messaged them about it also.
