    Certainly 1 of the better tonearms out there . In fact , Dietrich was kind enough to change my tonearms twice after it developed some minor issues many years after the warranty was over

    The New Acoustical System A*STELLAR turntable

    put the AFO & Astellar side by side , u can differentiate the finishing clearly. Maybe I didn’t like the silver matte finishing too much . Rattling top plate of the power supply / pump. Anyway, it’s a matter of taste

    The New Acoustical System A*STELLAR turntable

    Workmanship could have been better . Top plate of air pump / power supply is flimsy. Massive turntable . The bottom 2 chassis air floated. Top 2 chassis magnetically floated .
