    I have heard from others the Brinkmann and Etna SL go together really well. Please share your experiences with the Taurus demo.

    Thinking about getting the RöNT II tube power supply as well, have heard it should give the TT a nice notch up in performance. What I’ve understood, is that the impact is even greater with the direct drive TTs. Although, I think the Taurus is already reference level. The mechanical perfection is just so awesome.

    Kuoppis, do you prefer a record weight over the screw down clamp usually supplied with a Brinkmann turntable?

    I have been using the Stillpoints LPS for a while, and think it’s really good. But so far I haven’t tried the Brinkmann screw clamp with its counter ring under the record yet. This combination really clamps the record down. Need to give it try.

    On the AMG Viella I had before the LPS was way superior.
