It sure is heavy lol The turntable plays great  FM needs some work lol . Its another one owner deal and they gave me about 100 plus records lol some of em  I even like lol I wish the Kronborg came stock with the hd 15s so the potental upgrade to A-S 100 would be easier.

We'll wait for the report on how it sounds, but it is a handsome device. 

I was curious about that name, "Kronborg."  Turns out it's a Danish castle, so the name is a nod to the Danish style of the console, I guess.

Chris,  it sounds pretty good so far. The table cycles nicely and seems to play at the correct speed.  Fm tuner needs deoxed or something. It sounds like crap. but turn it to phono and it sounds great. I still plan to re-cap although I may use it as is for a little while I work on other stuff unless you guys convinceme that is tempting fate 😐 The case is solid but the top has taken a bit of abuse. Well see if it will clean up with the pens.

I was trying to load a video of this thing playing a record, but no workie, probably to big a file.  Do you guys just like to somewhere else and post the video there?

I posted my Provincial Serenade on YouTube.  I've done that with various videos that I wanted to distribute to family & friends.  It's easy and you're on your way to being famous. Then you can post the link here and we can all see it.

Ok, here is the link, I didn't have it turned up much and it sounded better live than it does on the recording but you get the picture.  I figure it needs the typical re-cap job to start with.

Find something on an obscure label that doesn't monitor YouTube.  Or something old.  It's surprising that they care--you're not using the music for a commercial purpose (but I guess YouTube is, since they run ads that we have to watch).
