Garrard 301 Compact 2 arm plinth Hawaiian Koa and Panz...
On special request from a client for a dual tonearm plinth for the Garrard 301 that is truly compact, we took our standard dual tonearm, articulating armboard plinth design and shrunk it down... We kept the curvature of the front face of the plinth matching the front arc of the Garrard 301 motor unit, and the sides of the plinth matching the tapered sides of the 301, and pulled the plinth dimensions in to 20" wide, measured across the widest point, by 16" deep, by just over 4" tall, yet, due to the design, still weighs in at just over 50 lbs with the deck. The corners are gracefully rounded. The two articulating armboards mount on platforms at the rear corners of the plinth, and allow the use of virtually any 9"-12" tonearms. The results exceeded expectations in sonic performance, aesthetics, and functionality. This is an amazing plinth, and is now a standard Woodsong Audio offering. The photos shown above are for reference only, your plinth will finished to your choice in actual wood finish based on photos of our extensive 'library' of seasoned exotic woods. Standard Hawaiian Koa, shown, is an intensely beautiful wood, of which we have numerous options. Please inquire about the many other finish/ setup options. Included with the dual tonearm plinth, in your choice of Hawaiian Koa, are 4 Track Audio isolation devices, 2 tonearm boards machined to your choice of tonearm, with hardware, a wiring harness which connects the 301 motor to the included Furutech IEC AC inlet on the rear of the plinth, and 4 Woodsong custom polished slot head screws to match the original Garrard provided mounting hardware, to mount the 301 motor to the plinth. Stillpoints are available as an option, though in most cases the Track Audio footers are superior as footers for Garrard 301/401 based, high mass/ direct coupled decks , please inquire for further information to see what is best for your listening room. The plinth core design is the culmination of everything we have learned after 10 years of working with the Garrards... many, many hours of listening, thinking, re-thinking, and constantly fine tuning... listening.... It is closely cut to fit the underside of the 301 to achieve a maximum mass in a minimal footprint. Engineered to be extremely lively, yet, optimally damped to help minimize any mechanical noise from the 301 motor unit, entering into the "stylus, record, platter, bearing, chassis, plinth, tonearm", loop. Woodsong Audio has built our reputation on an unmatched attention to detail, from start to finish. For the past 10 years we have been designing and building, and listening to turntables based on the Garrard 301, 401, the Thorens TD-124, and the Linn LP12. If you want, truly the finest quality in terms of craftsmanship, setup, and sonic performance, we are absolutely confident that your expectations will be exceeded, that is our standard.
