Downsizing
Not happy, due to unforeseen financial burden just sold my Ekos tonearm. Sad

Back to the Ittok in storage. Smile

RE: Downsizing
Damn.

A good Ittok is no slouch though, and better than many other arms available.

Agreed, although I'm probably biased.

RE: Downsizing
I'm the original owner of the Ittok (bought new back in June 1985), its in pristine condition and kept it in its original box but never had the guts to sell it. Just finished replacing the Ekos with the Ittok and no slouch at all!!! Also took the opportunity to replace the Greenstreet subchassis (hope it goes to a better home) with the original bonded Cirkus subchassis.

Hope financial conditions improve since next steps are no likable at all...

I feel for you. Sometimes life doesn't go as planned and I know exactly what that is. Keep faith. Things will turn out better I'm sure as it always does.

Just install that Ittok and get on with it Big Grin

Best,

Pedro

The bright side is that when things pick up, you can get a spanking new EKOS SE or whatever the latest incarnation is at that time. Smile

Original 1978 Fluted Afromosia LP12, Ekos 2, Lyra Kleos SL and lots of other stuff from the 70's that still work fine.
