Garrard 301 Precision Eddy Brake Disc Woodsong Audio Ex...
"Hi Chris, I installed the brake and pulley and like it very much. I would like to purchase another brake and pulley. Can I do this directly through Woodsong? I am using a beta version of Bill Carlin’s Phoenix Engineering Eagle controller (25W version) together with his tach. The controller dramatically reduces motor noise. The controller allows one to run the Garrard 301 without the brake. This makes one realize how much noise the original brake contributes. Unfortunately, without the brake the Garrard sound loses some of its midrange weight. With your brake and pulley I can run some braking without the excessive noise. You have done an excellent job on these components. My two 301’s and Lenco PTP5 are mounted in large slate plinths that I have worked on over several years. The turntables and tonearms are separated by 6 layers of 2” thick slate, with all layers separated by “mechanical diodes” or decoupling elements. I started with one 2” layer and took a “blind chicken approach - peck away till I find a seed”. Best Regards, Duane " * * This replacement Eddy Brake disc works exactly as the original, but with considerably less vibration than the original eddy brake disc. Lower vibration equals a reduced noise floor. This upgrade will lower vibration from your drive system, and will noticeably lower the noise floor. Typical installed run out in concentricity of the Woodsong Garrard eddy brake is less than 0.0001". Typical run out in concentricity of the original Garrard eddy brake discs is up to 0.015", and run out in the brass hub on the original eddy discs, I have seen up to 0.020". That much out of round increases vibration significantly. The Woodsong eddy brake disc is a huge improvement. In addition, almost all of the original eddy discs have been bent somewhere over the years, and are not flat. This is another source of vibration. Replacing your old eddy brake disc with this new disc is straightforward with basic mechanical skills. It can be done in about 10 minutes without removing the deck from the plinth. Lift the platter off of your Garrard, and spin the motor shaft with your fingers. Notice that the stock eddy brake disc is not a precision piece at all. This eddy brake disc is a huge improvement over the stock eddy brake. As a re-builder of these decks for the past 9 years, more than half of the decks that come through my shop have had bent or damaged Eddy Brake discs. In addition, the eddy brake as it came from the factory, when new, was never a precision item. The original is a brass hub which is pressed into a metal disc like a rivet. On many 301 eddy brakes, it is easy to see the out of precision, lack of concentricity of the original brass hub. Beyond even this, the hub of the original has a sloppy fit with the motor shaft. The original eddy brake disc is like having an eccentric cam on your motor shaft, increasing motor vibration, not ideal. The Eddy brake disc is mounted on the motor shaft, and,in combination with a magnetic bracket which is actuated by a knob on the deck controls, gives some adjustment to the running speed of the deck. This is the result of six months of research, prototyping, and testing, and it is a superb upgrade piece! The center of the disc is reinforced, and more than twice as thick as the original disc where it meets the mounting hub so it is less likely to be damaged in the future, though proper care should always be taken when moving or shipping a Garrard to prevent damage to the eddy brake disc. The fit of the hub is precision honed to the motor shaft, for a smooth and precision fit. The Woodsong Audio 301 Eddy Brake Disc is a drop-in replacement for your existing eddy brake disc designed as a direct OEM replacement of the original eddy current brake. It functions exactly as the original disc, with the same range of speed control, the same braking action. The disc is a slip fit onto the motor shaft, and secures with 4 socket head set screws, and the matching hex key is included with purchase. Shipping is included in the cost, withing the US. International shipping is $20, anywhere in the world.

GARRARD 301 CLASSIC MACASSAR EBONY AND PANZERHOLZ BY WO...
Here is a turnkey world class Garrard 301 setup, minus cartridge, in gorgeous Macassar Ebony. Included is a factory fresh Ortofon RS-309D tonearm with tonearm cable and digital scale, fine adjust solid bronze armboard, 4 Track Audio true isolation devices. This deck is shown for representation only. Please inquire for a timeline for manufacturing and delivery lead times, and about other specific options. Here is a link to see hi-res photos of this plinth, and many others: https://www.flickr.com/photos/51504257@N02/ Woodsong Audio often has in stock, 301 motor units for building a top level Garrard 301 turntable. We also have an extensive collection of instrument grade exotic hardwoods which we have been accumulating for years, waiting for the right moment to grace an amazing turntable. Every aspect of the Garrard 301 idler drive motor unit is completely disassembled, inspected, cleaned, and then skillfully re-assembled. On the 301 chassis, the face plates are removed to enable a full cleaning and polish of the enamel, then riveted back in place with stainless rivets to match the original aesthetic. Linkages are completely disassembled, cleaned in an industrial ultrasonic tank, re-assembled, treated with a light marine grade cleaner/ corrosion inhibitor, and lubed at the wear points and sliding surfaces. All springs are replaced, and proprietary Spring dampers installed on the motor carriage springs. A new spark suppressor is installed. The main spindle bearing is micro polished, and the bearing recharged with the correct lubricant. Idler wheel bushings are replaced with bushings made from a very high tech, long wearing, and high lubricity thermoplastic, audibly lowering mechanical noise from the idler drive. The motor is completely disassembled, the motor bushings stripped of the remaining old oil, the oilite porous structure cleaned thoroughly, and then recharged under vacuum with the correct lubricant. A new Woodsong high precision eddy current brake is fitted, along with a new speed correct 60hz marine brass pulley. The motor unit is then fine tuned and run in over the course of several days to ensure many years of optimum performance and trouble free operation. The Ortofon RS-309D dynamic balanced tonearm offers top shelf playback and mates well with the Garrard 301. Woodsong Audio is an official Ortofon dealer, and we carry many other high quality lines as well. If you are looking for something specific, please inquire. The Miyajima Shilabe Cartridge, and Oswald Mills Audio graphite headshell are not included in this listing. The Woodsong Classic 301 plinth features a solid bronze, rigidly mounted, 1" thick, 4.75" diameter tonearm mount which can be loosened and rotated in its recess to allow for precision micro adjustment in the spindle-to-pivot mounting distance. The plinth is a true CLD design, built with Russian birch plywood, a layer of man made slate, and just the right amount of Panzerholz, and vacuum pressed with nearly 2000 lbs/sq. ft., bonded with carefully chosen adhesives to ensure a mechanically cohesive, void free result. The current Woodsong Classic model is a culmination of 9 years of working with the Garrards, many hours of listening, and constant fine tuning of our designs. Woodsong plinths are unrivaled in sonic quality, craftsmanship, and longevity. Look closely at the details... Woodsong Audio is the ONLY plinth maker using 2mm thick, in house custom cut, genuine solid wood veneers for wrapping the sides of rounded corner plinths, bent exactly like the sides of a guitar, prior to vacuum pressing. Other plinth makers use paper thin, inexpensive, commercially supplied veneers which are ironed on. If you are considering the purchase of a custom built plinth, learn the difference between the 2, and how to tell, as there is no comparison in quality. Among the reasons why thin veneer is inferior to heat bent solid wood, is that over time, the paper thin veneer allows the layers of the plinth substrate to 'telegraph' through the finish when looking in the sheen of the finish. Other benefits to using heat bent solid wood for the finish include extreme longevity, significantly better depth in the natural colors, and better choice in where 'joints' are located on the plinth surface. You will never see a veneer joint running across the front or sides of a Woodsong plinth. Our signature finish is hand rubbed oil over highly polished wood. This needs to be seen in person to fully grasp the intense beauty of wood that is finished in this manner. Other finishes are available on request. Please inquire with any questions, to check on availability, and also delivery times. Ships world wide in a specially built crate to ensure safe transit.

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.

Woodsong Audio Thorens TD124 TD 124 Old Growth Indian ...
This fantastic plinth is finished in Old Growth Indian Rosewood. This Rosewood Board board was found in the stash of a deceased guitar maker. It is nearly impossible to find Quartersawn Indian Rosewood like this anymore. Think 'old Martin Guitar'... It is gorgeous. Almost all Indian Rosewood available today is plantation grown in Indonesia. That stuff is still nice, it is the same species, but the colors and grain are just not quite like the 'real deal'. The plinth in the photos is not the actual plinth for sale, but identical. One armboard is included in the price, cut for your choice of 9" tonearm. Armboard is made from Basswood, with a thin Constrained Layer of German Panzerholz. Armboard top is also finished in Indian Rosewood. The listed price of $2800 includes 4 Track Audio footers (not shown) The Stillpoints Ultra SS footers are an additional $400. Please contact me to determine which footers are best for your particular listening room/ rack. New mounting studs, and associated mounting hardware are included with this plinth. Installation is straightforward, and the fit is precision. Woodsong Audio has been building top quality plinths for the past 9 years. We have tested many different materials, and different combinations of materials, culminating in what we know to be the very best plinths available today. Woodsong Audio is the ONLY plinth maker using 1.8 -2.0mm thick veneers for plinths with rounded corners. We cut this, 'in house', from special boards which are hand selected for beautiful grain, and long lasting quality. All the others are using thin commercially supplied veneers for the sides. It is easy to tell the difference just by looking. There is a HUGE difference in quality. If you are in the market for a new plinth, it would be wise to find out how to tell the difference, and why the commercially supplied veneer used by other makers is vastly inferior. . We are the ONLY plinth maker using a vacuum press for the plinth core. This is the only way to ensure zero voids between the bonded layers of substrate, and keep the amount of adhesives separating the layers to an absolute minimum. Hand operated clamping attempts, screws, etc, do not even come close. For the most part, adhesives including epoxy act as damping, and inhibit energy transfer between layers in a CLD plinth. Vacuum pressing helps to achieve a coherent, true to material substrate with the absolute minimum amount of adhesive ,which means a better sounding plinth. Yes, this makes a difference. Worldwide shipping is available. Please contact me for a shipping quote. If you are in need of a plinth for your Thorens TD124, look no further. Please contact me for other finish options. Thank you.

Thorens TD2010 Turntable with SME M2-9 tone arm and Den...
Belt drive turntable with SME M2-9 tone arm. The new Acrylic-Series is stunning - not only from a visual point of view. Thanks to elaborate control circuitry, an extremely stable acrylic plinth and a heavy aluminium platter, the turntables are made to sound as exciting as they look. The external motor unit of the Thorens Acrylic-Series was constructed in a way that there is no mechanical contact to the plinth, thus avoiding transfer of vibration. In addition, the entire turntable rests on special feet which effectively dampen all kinds of air-born or footfall vibrations and eventually ensure a continuous, undisturbed run of the platter. SME offers a meticulously built product, including lightweight stainless steel tone arm, detachable magnesium headshell with azimuth adjustment, tungsten balance weight, superb quality ball race bearings and a level of stiffness and rigidity to suit all types of cartridges. The Denon cartridge has less than 20 hours of use. The cartridge will be shipped with stylus cover, and packed carefully, but no guarantee due to their delicate nature. However, I have successfully shipped cartridges in the past. Also included is the optional dust cover, the Thorens record stabilizer and Gingko Audio Cloud Vibration Control Platform, shipped separately. If you were to purchase all of these items new, you would be spending well over $6000.

SoundWaves Cantano Grande Turntable / Tonearm - made in...
SoundWaves Turntables (aka KlangWellen Manufaktur) is a company from Berlin, Germany with an amazing new turntable and tone arm. We are proud to introduce this turntable/tone arm to the US market. After 8 years of development Oliver von Zedlitz, designer and owner of the company, is finally at a point where he is satisfied with every aspect of his products - the Cantano Grande Turntable and Canatano Grande Tone Arm. Oliver also owns a manufacturing shop that builds among other things highly precise medical equipment and instruments with CNC machinery. The same precision is used to craft SoundWaves Turntables and Tone Arms. The disappointing purchase of a new turntable was the reason Oliver began thinking about developing a turntable himself. The combination of his own production capabilities, the resources available for developing a hi-fi component, plus his own ideas seemed to be good condition for the turntable project. Some of the experiments necessary to achieve the maximum sound improvements in every detail lasted for years. Many well-known audio manufacturers have emerged from highly-qualified manufacturing companies. SoundWaves’ production operation is a prerequisite for the implementation of all ideas and performing the many experiments to optimize the sound of the turntable. With 15 employees on more than 25 machines the company makes high-precision parts for the medical-, vaccum- and analysis branches of technology. Of course, all parts of the turntable and tone arm are made by SoundWaves on CNC machines. Therefore, the precision in manufacturing the turntable and tone arm is the highest possible. For example, the hand-polished turntable bearings have a bearing clearance of 1-2 microns, the result being the best "wow and flutter" values, the best concentricity, virtually no tilting of the platter and the lowest possible noise levels. REVIEWS: Dirk Sommer of HiFi Statement (05/13 - the earlier version of the turntable): "...the Klangwellen Manufaktur is a newcomer to the analog scene, but have already proved themselves with their first two products tonally as heavyweight contenders... not many other turntables and tonearms provide so much analog euphony as the two Cantanos - and if so, usually at a much higher price. The duo from Klangwellen Manufaktur is visually elegant, comes very well pre-calibrated, ready for operation without demanding anything from its owner at all. Nice that sonic excellence is not only available to banished analog specialists..." Check out the entire review FEEDBACK: Jason Victor Serinus - Stereophile (California Audio Show, Aug. 2013): "...Nice Nice Nice. So Warm. Nice Nice Nice. Absolutely captivating. Just great..." Mal Kenney - PartTimeAudiophile.com (California Audio Show, Aug. 2013): "...every turntable maker seems to have a problem that he wants to solve, and the Cantato’s claim to fame is, apparently, its silence. Other than perfectionist bearings, that whole, wacky platform assembly is non-optional. The unipivot arm alone is a piece of industrial art..." - "...the sound here was dead steady on Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster, allowing Mulligan’s sax to growl out in a way that I associate less with speakers and more with... well... a sax." - "...for my tastes, this was one of the special rooms at the show..." SPECIFICATIONS: Tonearm: Mounting distance - pivot to spindle: 295mm Overhang: 9.5mm Offset angle: 15 degrees Effective Length: 12 inch = 304mm Effective Mass: 10g Turntable: Speed: 33 and 45 rpm Special feature: Bearing relieved using magnets Dimensions (W/H/D): 395/270/300mm (Base) Weight: 26 kg = 58 lbs.Price: US$ 26,900.- (Turntable, Tone Arm, Base) web: www.highend-electronics.com and www.klangwellenmanufaktur.de DEALER INQUIRIES ARE WELCOME!

Teres Audio / Graham Arm / Denon Model 255 table / 2.2...
For sale is the well known and rarely offered spectacular Teres Audio acrylic weighted plater and cocobolo wood table with battery powered motor. Included is the Graham 2.0 arm that was most recommended for this table and a humble but great sounding Denon cartridge. Sold as a set, will not separate. The battery is at its life's end and needs to be replaced. And Teres now offers an upgraded motor that can take this table to even higher levels. I have owned this table for years of problem free enjoyment. It does occasionally start on its own as it starts by spinning the platter and a strong vibration seams to initiate it also. Never really bothersome as the table spinning is such a beautiful sight it's almost hypnotic. I would really prefer a local pickup but I will pack well if needed. It's heavy as H E double hockey sticks! So shipping will be on the buyer and will be $65- to anywhere in the continental U.S. It has been gently used and well cared for. No cosmetic issues. I may have original box and papers but I'm not sure. I'll check. This is one of the most beautiful looking and sounding tables ever made. Make me an offer. Please be local. I really don't want to pack this heavy table up and worry about it getting damaged during shipping. Continental U.S. Only. If out of country find someone you know in the U.S. To pick it up for you and then pack and ship it to you. *** - please be aware that the listing says it's a 2.2 arm and it's a 2.0 arm. I can't seam to change the listing text.

The first prototype, about 6 months in, was a somewhat primitive "brute force" ultrasonic machine, actually quite similar to a couple of ultrasonic-only cleaning machines which are currently being marketed for LP cleaning by other companies. But brute force and the LP don't mix well. Keep in mind that the bottom of the LP groove where the pointy diamond wants to track, can be less than a half micron in size, and the modulations within the groove are even smaller and more fragile. And so began 3 more years of R&D to reduce the ultrasonic power which needed to be applied for safe and effective LP cleaning.The addition of four counter-rotating microfiber-covered barrels as the primary means for the surface cleaning of fingerprints, etc., allowed for a significant reduction in ultrasonic wattage, and also serves an important fluid management function by wicking the ultrasonic agitation away from the LP surface into the cleaning solution where contaminants can be filtered. This fluid management is important because otherwise the contaminants the ultrasonic vibration removes from the surface of the record can simply redeposit back onto the LP surface.Another improvement in cleaning efficiency allowing for a further reduction in the need for ultrasonic power was achieved through introduction of a cleaning solution surfactant to make the distilled water a better solvent when used in conjunction with the ultrasonic process. Add a fluid filter to clean the re-circulating cleaning solution, and air filters to collect airborne dust which would otherwise be blown back onto the wet surface of the LP during the drying cycle, and you basically have the current machine - a record cleaning robot that cleans to the bottom of the groove, and then by using fan-assisted air drying, rather than static-inducing suction, leaves the user with a thoroughly cleaned record with no static charge attracting airborne dust.Summary:-safe low level ultrasonic to dislodge contaminants all the way to the bottom of the LP groove,-bidirectional surface cleaning using microfiber-covered barrels, which also manages fluid motion to wick contaminants away from the LP surface,-fluid filtration to remove contaminants,-filtered air drying to avoid the introduction of a dust-attracting static charge to the LP surface,-one button full automation.

Audio Desk Vinyl Cleaning Machine - TRADE-INS ARE WELC...
Audio Desk Vinyl Cleaner - The First Ultrasonic Record Cleaning Machine TRADE-INS ARE VERY WELCOME (EVEN CASH-LESS DEALS POSSIBLE) Audio Desk Systeme's Vinyl Cleaner is the first and only LP cleaning machine that incorporates an ultrasonic cleaning cycle in addition to a more conventional mechanical cleaning via bi-directional rotating microfiber cleaning drums, and the result is the cleanest LP's ever. And it is fully automatic - just put the LP in the slot, push the button, and come back in 5 minutes for a thoroughly cleaned and dried LP (both sides). Whole new layers of inner detail and air are revealed in the recordings, and of course most surface noise is eliminated.Comes with 2 vials of a proprietary cleaning fluid developed specifically for this machine. A container of the fluid concentrate plus 4 liters of distilled water (just over a gallon) cleans 200 new LP's, or 100 used LP's.Technical: How can sound clean?Ultrasonic is sound generated above the human audible level.A physical effect called "cavitation" results from the generation of ultrasonic frequencies in a liquid. In this cavitation process ultrasonic "compression waves" are created by an ultrasonic transducer. When the amplitude of this soundwave increases to a level where the surface tension of the liquid is broken, the fluid will "tear" apart leaving behind millions of microscopic vacuum bubbles. These vacuum bubbles then rapidly compress or implode creating millions of tiny liquid jets small enough to clean inside the smallest grooves of an LP. This process, also called "microagitation," displaces any contaminants on the surface of the LP.Stereophile Product of the Year - The Absolute Sound Product of the Year - Editor's Choice Awards for 2013 - The Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award for 2014!

It is a must!"A quick word regarding the cleaning fluid: In order to treat the vinyl as gently as possible, and create the best possible sound, the cleaning fluid, specifically developed for the Vinyl Cleaner, avoids the use of alcohol, instead relying on a mild biodegradable mixture with excellent cleaning properties and outstanding anti-static characteristics. Just one container of cleaning fluid concentrate (2 are included with the machine) is enough to clean approximately 100-200 discs (depending on the level of disc contamination). The wet filter is easy to clean: saturate with distilled water and ring out. The inspection interval for the wet filter is identical to the replacement of the cleaning fluid. The 4 microfiber-cleaning barrels are extremely robust and therefore only need to be replaced after approximately 500 completed cleaning cycles.Order today:web: www.highend-electronics.comAs a business we have to collect 8% TAX from buyers in California.

Garrard 301 African Wenge Plinth by Artisan Fidelity
Positive Feedback Online Article by Jeff Day Quote:"To give you an idea of the level of artistry involved, Christopher's Artisan Fidelity Garrard 301 Statement Plinth easily rivals the fit & finish of my Gibson Custom Shop Brazilian Rosewood & Adirondack Spruce Advanced Jumbo guitar, and with a musical prowess to match its artisan musical instrument-like level of craftsmanship." Michael Fremer quote: "I will say for the record and on this video, this is so far the best sound I have heard at the show." 2015 AXPONA Chicago Sunday late afternoon enjoying music playing in the Artisan Fidelity room. http://www.analogplanet.com/content/artisan-fidelity-turntables-drew-me-sound-made-me-stayArtisan Fidelity Garrard 301 African Wenge plinth with Panzerholz tonearm board finished in high gloss clear coat, includes set of (4/ea.) Brass spikes (not shown). (Please note: Plinth available immediately, in stock and ready for shipping. Reed tonearm, Stillpoints and base Garrard 301 turntable not included at listing price). To the best of our knowledge, no higher quality Garrard 301 wood based plinth currently exists on the market, period. The conventional Russian Birch based core internal design architecture ensures silent backgrounds and ample dampening for mass loading and direct coupling of the non-suspended Garrard 301 idler drive. The displayed configuration is ready to accommodate a single, nine to twelve inch effective length tonearm. Tonearm board milled from resonant damped German Panzerholz. Like our Statement models, although the void-less plinth design is technically high mass, it is not in any way over damped, unlike many recent designs which often inhibit liveliness in favor of darkness and deadness, robbing the Garrard 301 of its inherent life, vibrancy and energy. Our conventional composite Russian Birch recipe simply allows the maximum energy of the musical landscape to flow without hindrance. Veneer thickness vary, depending upon wood species and ranges from 1/24" - 1/7" are typical after final sanding and prior to finishing. For clientele having specific design/material application requests, we provide a myriad of premium core construction and tonearm board materials for your consideration. These materials may range from Russian Birch, domestic hardwoods, imported exotic hardwoods, German Panzerholz, aircraft aluminum alloys, austenitic steels and Acetal Copolymers / Homopolymers. Our hand selected team consists of 3rd generation master woodworkers combined with a state of the art machining and finishing facility. Our Garrard 301 plinth designs were carefully tuned by ear and finely developed over a period of 4 years for the ultimate musical expression and tonal characteristics. Each Garrard 301 plinth is now individually laid out, core hand assembled, bonded set and precision CNC milled on a state of the art Bridgeport mill, then painstakingly hand finished using premium sealers and surface coatings. Comprehensive one year manufacturers warranty against defects included.Package includes: Artisan Fidelity Garrard 301 African Wenge Classic plinth, Matching Wenge Panzerholz blank armboard, Brass adjustable spike footers (4/ea.). Professional ISPM-15 Stamped Certified crate supplied for safe worldwide delivery. Sincerely,Christopher ThorntonArtisan FidelityHand Crafted Analog Designswww.firstname.lastname@example.org

Palmer 2.5 turntable w/ Audio Origami tonearm *Almost New*
I am proud to offer a virtually new Palmer 2.5 turntable in birch finish, complete with PSU and strobe unit and all accessories. The unit also includes an Audio Origami PU7 tonearm in brushed silver. The current list price for this kit is $11,990.My customer is the original owner of this turntable. He purchased it new earlier this year from an authorized dealer and played the deck approx. 50 hours before deciding to go in a different direction. This turntable is in perfect condition and looks absolutely like new - no dings, dents or scratches. The cartridge isn't even broken in yet. As you can see from the photos, this turntable is stunning and is very well constructed. The fit and finish leaves nothing to be desired. Local pickup (L.A. area) is preferred but I will ship to all 50 states and Canada. The turntable includes the original wood shipping crate and can be shipped safely and securely without risk of damage. From Paul Seydor's review in The Absolute Sound, Nov. 2013:This is one turntable that I cannot recommend highly enough, especially for those in search of a set-it-up-and-forget-it record-playing component that at the same time allows for a very fine degree of precision in adjustment and very high performance. I wish I had more time to try it with other arms—I’d especially like to hear it with a Graham Phantom—but in saying that, I have no wish to suggest I was in any way dissatisfied with the combination as loaned.And one final point before I sign off: I really love the classic aesthetics of the Palmer, the clean, simple lines, the reasonable size (you can lift it without fear of hernia), and most especially the use of wood. I can’t tell you how tired I am of intricate space-age designs made from gleaming glass and polished metals and acrylics that look fabulous when they first come out of the box, then get dusty, smudged, and scratched and require more time to clean than a Viking stove (with far greater risk of damaging something). I am reminded of Thoreau at Walden finding three pieces of limestone that struck his fancy. He brought them home and placed them on his desk. When a few days later he discovered to his horror that he had to dust them, he reckoned their decorative value wasn’t worth the effort and tossed them out. The Palmer looks as good as it sounds, requires almost zero maintenance, and with an all-wood plinth, doesn’t show dust, is easy to clean, and its soft, warm, glowing beauty will look as good in ten years as it does now. That’s my kind of pulchritude.Please call or email me if you have any questions. *Please note that the phono cartridge shown in the photos IS NOT included
