I’m not one for the purple prose of audio reviews. Sorry to let you down. However, I doubt my subjective observations bear much relevance to anyone else. I will say I could happily live with a 10R as my one ‘table. Shiny, new, warranty, and performs great. What’s not to like?

Would I trade a MK3 for a 10R? Not a chance. While objective measurements of the 10R are the slightest bit better than the MK3, I think the MK3 is a higher-caliber unit. Beefier components, better machining, and better industrial design; even if the control unit is dated. It’s a brute.

Maybe Fremers Caliburn became a bit old. Also many changes he made on the tonearms especially with the Swedish one. It does not match the design.

He might look out for a real innovation in Direct Drives:
