My arm board is going to be perspex ,it's going to decoupled from the platter and motor and look like the lp12.

It cost 4.80 for a piece of 15mm acrylic but $8 for it to be delivered.

My turntable is making slow progress . Had to buy and wait for a router . Then a bit for the router.

While it's being made my thoughts turn to the next project. I've gone cold over the idea of class a, to big for my rack ,not suitable for using with tv.

So ,I thought about speakers. I'm smitten with the 12 inch bass and the cabinets.

So a new 5 inch driver . Currently got an audax polypropylene. Anyone any experience of decent 5 inch midrange or will there be little or no difference?
