should i build my own turntable wall mount?
I am wondering, if for the prices they are asking, it would be practical and cost efficient to do my own wall mount for my turntable, Gemini PT-2000 @ 27 pounds, which is a copy of the Technics SL1200.
The collars fit into the base of the cabinets. The thumbcrews hold outriggers legs in place. The spikes & thumbscrews in a separate image are mounted on the outriggers. I did consider using laser cut acrylic as a base, as ATC do themselves, but due to the weight of the cabinets I decided upon stainless steel.

Idler drive turntables let the music come first. You will find yourself tapping your foot instead of focussing on sound quality. Idlers simply have incredible musicality and energy. This is achieved by the use of a strong motor with lots of torque and the absence of belt stretching losses. The result is a drive system that simply keeps going, undeterred by stylus drag and that does wonders for the rhythm and timing of the music.
