SOTA Star Sapphire turntable J. Gordon Holt, August 1985

J. Gordon Holt wrote about the SOTA in August 1985 (Vol.8 No.4):

The SOTA Star Sapphire turntable and the Technics EPA100 tonearm, both Class A Recommended Components, are mutually incompatible. Because of its very large base skirt, its right-angle cable plug, and the SOTA's cylindrical arm-mounting well, the Technics arm cannot be mounted on the SOTA's recessed tonearm board. This is a real shame. I discovered the wonders of the Technics arm/cartridge combination, then the wonders of the SOTA 'table, then the fact that I couldn't use them together!—J. Gordon Holt
