I almost have a BIC 960 together as the platter/pad are coming, need the lid hinges, are they the same as on the 912?

Those type tonearms look like a pain for cartridge swapping. I shake too much & need the arm or headshell upside down to get the bolts started. I imagine threaded cartridges help a bit?

Beer is good and so is the arm/cartridge!

I guess if you swapped cartridges a lot it would be a hassle but I don’t. It would be easier to swap in another arm with the aligned cartridge of choice, but this combo works really well. Detailed without being overly analytical. Crappy recordings sound like crap and good ones sound great.

All my vinyl is antique so mostly done correctly. I get very few junkers and those are often general condition (surface noise) more than poor mastering
