Make Your Turntable Look Like A Museum Piece!
Wednesday, June 6, 2007
I am very happy with this Ginko acrylic cover for my VPI Scout turntable.
It was news to me that the era of hinged dust covers ended a long time ago! But there are a few choices on protecting an expensive turntable from dust or little children.
This product is attractive but in my opinion, perhaps due to its size, the result is slightly pretentious. My turntable now looks like it is sitting in a museum case! Well that's ok. So far all my friends are pretty impressed.
This cover fits nicely on top of the table, it has cut-out areas for cables and for hand holds. One must take a certain amount of care to not bump the arm when removing the cover but it's no big deal. I don't think you could try to use this cover while playing a record.
Perhaps a rumor, but I think I heard that there may be a cheaper alternative: there perhaps is a template at some "Tap Plastics" stores (California) where something similar could be made to order.
