Don't know how much of an improvement the ceramic platter is over the standard platter,
Does the 3D arm have a metal bearing cup inserted?Paul
Well I will let you know my subjective impressions of the new ceramic platter over the old black MKIII platter in a little while. Being delivered today. Obviously I won;t be able to do a direct A-B, but I know you will all trust my ears and sonic memory.
