Sorry for the late response. If you want to see someone do it, look for "diy cable coiling" by a guy named "CruzCtrl" But this is how I did it :) I looped it around a steel bar as tight as I could, securing the ends of the cable with tape so they don't come loose, then heat it with a heat gun at 150 °C and about 10cm apart from it, constantly moving the heat gun so the cable doesn't get burn, do that for about 2 minutes and leave it cool down. Repeat the process of heating and letting it cool 3 to 5 times, the final step is to just leave it for 12 to 24 hours, take the tape off and enjoy your new coil :D

Let me go on the record... player for the first time
Hi, I'm looking at getting into the record player game. Thank you for your time in advance, I know this is a long read. Anyways... I have some Massdrop x AKG M220 Blues and a Little Dot Mk 3 220v tube amp from the Mega Mystery Box from way back when, and I've really only used the AKGs a few times, but enough that I can tell they're WAY beyond the quality of music I can push to them. I need some recommendations on some speakers, a record player, and maybe an amp if what I'm working with is totally inappropriate. I'm really new to the audiophile game, so if there's another piece of kit I'd need to get the most out of a setup, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm giving rough budgets, but if you know of something that's a little outside the range but is a much larger leap in performance and features than the leap in budget, I'm game. If anyone knows of a good place to get new and old records for good prices, I'd like to know that too! The intent is to have a nice place to sit...
