    Very cool. Looks like it only plays small records.

    Thanks Mike. Itís very dynamic and punchy. The DD shows itís merits with this superb table. I have paired it with a Transfiguration Proteus Diamond (not available anymore). Itís a fabulous combination.

    I love how the table is full speed within a second. Itís gorgeous to look at too.

    I just spent an afternoon auditioning this table. I agree that it has some real strengths, including being dynamic and punchy. Of all the reviews published so far, the one that that I think hits the mark is Ken Kessler's review in Hi Fi News. His final comment - 'Match it carefully with your system to avoid an over-etched sound, and you'll have a deck for life'

    Hey Mike

    well done. Does that mean all 400 have now been manufactured/sold?

    Are they going to make anymore?

    Nope, limited to 400. They still have inventory.
