Not trying to restart a hi fi thread here, but in case anyone wonders what a 'super Lenco' deck is and its relation to a Lentek phono pre-amp is;
If you sift through the images in this link you should see what a few of us obsessives get up to
in a variety of weird DIY wooden constructions with odd looking machined top plates holding or showing spaces for the central bearing and idler drive wheel.https://www.google.com/search?q=ptp6+le ... cDPW1t5E0M
The Goldring Lenco L75 was a solid built turntable from the 1970s which had what can be described as a muscular drive system with a heavy platter and a well built wooden plinth. The main weaknesses of this deck by todays standards would be the standard arm and a somewhat resonant pressed metal top plate which combined to limit serious resolution (Hifi qualities).
The fashion today is to take an old Lenco and strip out the best bits, which are the motor, main bearing, idler drive and speed control gubbins then ditch the rest.
Then make your own multi layered birch ply plinth (the thicker the better) and replace the standard top plate with a set of precision machined main bearing and motor mount top plates from PTP Audio. Some people use plinth materials other than birch ply such as hardwoods or add a layer of slate.
Then add your own quality arm and cartridge of choice and relish in some weighty music making.
The Lentek phono pre-amp comes into play if you are going to use a Denon DL103 low output moving coil cartridge. The 0.3mv output of this MC is well matched to Lenteks pre-amp and the slight leanness in that pre-amps sound was a good counter to what was described as the 'syrupy' sound of Lentek's own Entre MC cartridge of the time or a slightly over rich sound sometimes attributed to the 103 MC.
My plan is to complete the build of a customised Lenco deck of my own using PTP top plates and a few of my own tweaks, then add my own spare arm and 103 MC. Hence my interest in the Lentek Pre when it appeared on here.
