Stunning deck!!

...what do you like about the Hana cart?
I am terrible at descriptive's but I think they have a nice 'rounded' sound. Never harsh but with enough detail to keep one interested.

My just restored TD 160B mkII with SME 3009 II improved arm.

The plint is made, (not by me) of Walnut. Bottom plate is 4mm aluminium damped internally with bitumen. Feet in aluminium with o-ring dampening.
I also opted for a new top plate with additional nice chrome caps!

I have just installed a Nagaoka MP-200, but have replaced the cork platter mat with Origin Live Upgraded Platter Mat. Very nice sounding!

Now I just need to learn the tonearm/cartridge setup properly..

Very nice.

Is this one of the German stainless top plates? I like the texture. If I fail at my attempt to keep the original Thorens arm lift, I may go this route.
