a fantastic great turn table if you only build a new heavy plint to it its a real price winner !!

Actually, I'm taking a bit of a different stand on this one.
It's a great TT, which can (as standard) be tuned to be VERY quiet. The Arm is mediocre at best. Yes, tightening the bearings and replacing the V-blocks is easy to do, and will bring huge difference. coupled with the likes of Grado Prestige Gold it sounds clear, bold and dynamic, and very entertaining indeed. change the arm into something like the Rega RB251 (which drops easily into the standard arm mountings) and it's getting much better.
Actually, I'm fine with the original plinth. tried to install the TT, as is, in a new, heavy and 'improved' plinth I've made, and it turned up sounding much the same. From my point of view - the main contribution of a new plinth is the possibility to install a new arm, without the limitation of the original arm mounting (VERY limiting) and than isolate it from vibrations better.
Huge fun to play with!
