Its only fault is that it wasn't made in a small garden shed using only a hammer and a hacksaw by someone your friends have never heard of, so it lacks 'HiFi' cred :):)

non-artisanal components from the 70s and 80s. Personally, I'm in the market for a new TT and the Technics is on my must audition list. I can't seem to find a bad review out there.

I would go for the new Technics 1200G, as I have said numerous times on these pages, I have heard it and can't stop thinking about it. Sadly (well not really) I bought an SME10 and after searching long and heard also found an LVIII MK2 Ittok for my Linn so for now my shopping has come to a halt. I do have the older 1200 and will put an SMEIV on it but if I were you I would run and get that Technics - I was very impressed. Not that the Stogi is bad either, fantastic table as well, but that Technics....

Which was before CDs appeared, I nearly bought a Stogi.

But all these 'skeleton' turntables, lacking both a base and a dust cover are totally impractical in the real world, which has dust, dogs, flies dead and alive, and curious cats in it.

Sure you can make or buy a cover that covers the entire thing but then you are looking at a 'lash up' all day.

Dust goes everywhere, I have an SME10 without cover and yes it attracts dust but so too does my Technics 1200 and LP12 both with dustcovers. In Manhattan dust is everywhere. Just buy a ginko cover for these skeleton plinth tables and you're all set.

The plinth design reminds me of Soul lines "Elgar DCX" http://www.soulines.com/elgar-dcx @spacehound, I just got these custom vibration isolation feet for my son's technics 1210, and they worked great, https://mnpctech.com/turntable-feet-replacement-isolation/
