congrats. i think there are 2 schools of thought on TT estetics. i look at a rega P9, thorens, lynn, garrard, and know its a great table, but to me it just doesn't have the WOW factor. my rational brain thinks - looks don't matter, its the sound that counts. but, i just can't pay that much money for something that looks that simple. you have hit a home run on the WOW factor and the sound as well it seems. that could be your last turntable. awesome.
