    Sorry, I missed your post. I am considering the DCS Vivaldi / Metronome Kalista /C2A and SME30 and Forsell turntables.
    Under construction around the DCS Vivaldi 2.0 stack and a pair of Wilson XLF's : Forsell Air Force One, ARC Phono 2SE, cj GAT + Lamm M1.2 ref, TA OPUS MM2 +TA XL digital, TA XL gen V power cables and CenterStage footers ...

    If you account for inflation, the 1985 model would be $170), and in todays price is $3900.

    So???

    Personally Iíd pass on doubling the cost for the plinth/arm version, ie stick with $10k SP-20R platter/motor option, put it in a bespoke two-tier slate plinth/arm board (plenty of people offer these options), and plonk the lot on an isolation platform.

    As would I. I imagine most of the purchases will be of the no plinth variety.

    Indeed it does Marc. Here is some reading regarding the TT https://thevinylfactory.com/features...ble-interview/

    Apparently cost and size prevented them using a LPS. I think that is a shame but hey. I think the coolest thing I saw was a huge custom linear PS made by Pass Labs as a one off specifically for their mk III. Unobtainium but very cool.

    It is not. Even if it doesn't transfer through the TT itself, it isn't good for the AC eco system.

    I don't expect Technics to sell it for nothing, but with their resources this seems... price gougey.
