Is a PTP Solid 12 (Lenco) worthy of a $5k cartridge

Calling audiophiles who have heard these PTP modified Lenco GL75. It looks like a neat modification/restoration. But can they be considered as a serious front-end worthy of a $5k cartridge and $10k phonostage ?

There is a lot of fan following for vintage idler drives, especially those which are updated and modified with the latest components but I seldom see people using top quality ancillaries with these turntables. I have been going through a lot of posts on forums and youtube videos related to these TTs. Almost every time I see these paired with some Denon 103 variants or sometimes an SPU. I am fancying to put a high quality Dynavector/ZYX/Benz/Transfiguration on it. Will it make sense ?

Thanks. Thats good news.

I am now shortlisting tonearms. The obvious cost effective choice is Thomas Schick. But I am also looking at Origin Live, SME 3012R or a Fidelity Research FR64s. 
Hi.  I have the Artisan Fidelity Achates SE with an Etna but also use a Kleos SL.  The Lenco platform is definitely capable of world class sound.   Don’t hesitate to go big on the cartridge.  Check out my post and links for some info.   Fremer declared “Best of Show!”



I know I'm late to the conversation, but I own the PTP Solid 12 (Lenco) and I need to purchase repair parts for it. I found the parts I'm looking for on FixPart. However, I have no experience with the website, their product quality, and their customer service. Has anyone every purchased products from this website before? Some insight would be much appreciated.


Thank you in advance.

Better to say exactly what parts you bought and tell something about the vendor. You can’t source parts from Peter Reinders direct? What makes you question Fixpart?
