A bit surprised re the comments there about the counterweight hitting the dust cover with the Dynavector cart - FWIW, I am using a Quintet Black, which weighs 9 grams, with tracking weight at 2.3 grams and it does not hit the dust cover at the end of a side with the cover down, though it comes close. I reckon that if one needs to play with the cover down due to cats, small children, or other life forms in proximity to the table, one can either limit the weight of one's cartridge or try one of the heavy rega counterweights that are available from various sources. Having owned the 'table now for some time, this is pretty much the only thing I'd change - if they made the plinth 1/4 of an inch wider it would eliminate the issue. Not really a problem for me as there are plenty of choices at about the Quintet's weight or under, but FWIW: Some of us do need that dust cover to be there!
Have a few friends with pretty serious analog hardware (not gonna name names
) who come over to listen and they have been very impressed with the BLP-1.
