WHY ??
« on: 26 Jan 2017, 06:46 am »
Can someone explain why this table sounds so good?

It seems to defy the laws of physics.  First set one up in the late '80s - blew everyone's mind, couldn't keep them in stock although I didn't know how many

were being made. 

People get scared when an item is so different.  Haven't heard one since the Classic.  Wizard of Oz.

No bearings.

I suppose that could be part of it but the spindle does still come into contact with the housing, or are you referring to the lack of bearing in the tonearm?

Both.  Everything rides or slides in goo.
Like all of the best ideas it's so simple and clever you can't believe it.
