I bought several that were supposed to be upgrades and ended up flipping them because the Fisher sounded better. It wasn't until I got to the JVC QL-A7 that I finally put the 6225 in reserves, and that comparison was still relatively close. I feel if analog hadn't declined in popularity, that the "platter as motor" design would have been refined and become a preferred drive choice.
The current Brinkmann Audio Bardo model seems to be a variation on that design concept, and it is a $10,000 table. That is the table I would want if I hit the lottery or something.
Hi: I own a Fisher 6335, (120 pole linear motor etc) not so nice to view as the 6225 but the same principle, I bought it new in 1980 aprox, and it is running flawless today, only "Service" was last year to put some drops of oil in the main shaft/spinde (there is a little screw that covers a hole where it is allocated, you can see it if you take out the entire bottom of the TT)
With a ShureV15IV the original Shure stilus and now a JicoSAS it outperforms all the tracking tests of the Shure ERA IV Test vinyl...
I´m very happy with it..
Sorry my english
