    Question How heavy is your Turntable ?

    How much does your turntable weigh?

    What would the footprint be in length and width for a platform/stand?

    You are also welcome to identify the name of your table if you would like to.

    Thanks,
    Dre

    Thanks Bruce!

    Can you supply the footprint (L x W) required for the stand/platform to support the table?

    It's certainly no HRX...

    about 17.75" x 13.75"

    Does have an outboard speed controller which you have to find another shelf to sit it on.

    Happy New Year Andre!

    My Walker Proscenium weighs in at around 250 lbs (not counting the pump box and platform).

    I have a suspended wood floor over joists on 16" centers, so I have a lolly column in the basement under each of the two front legs of the table rack (which also holds my Allnic H3000 phono stage), and the rear of the rack is bolted to the studs in the wall.

    The Walker Audio Proscenium Platform is 24" W x 18" D x 4" H

    People, you are referring to lightweights ...

    A german audiophile from whom I am getting an old Oracle premier for my collection (yes, I could not resist, as I feel bad every time I visit a friend who got my premier from me in a moment of weakness) owns the The Brakemeier Apolyth : it weights over 250kg (550 lbs) http://www.knipschild.net/Brakemeier/apolyt.htm

    I felt guilty looking at the review - when I got my Studer A80s I got a spare capstan motor and a Studer board controller to built a an upgraded drive motor for my Forsell. It is still in my filled unfinished projects cupboard. Please look at the motor of this turntable - it is a B77 Revox motor with the controller from the B77!
