This is my first post on AudioCircle and jointed specifically because of this forum. I just received a Simplex a few days ago second hand. I just came from a Clearaudio Concept but my dream turntable was the Simplex well before that - been fascinated by the design since I first heard of it. After a lot of wait/patience, I finally found one that was in my budget (but I better sell that Concept!).
Anyway, the manual looks clear except for the height of the suspension pillar. The manual states the pillar should be approx 95mm above the plinth. I assume that is the top of the pillar but I just question it because, at that setting, the bottom of the pillar is so close to the rack surface. What does that 95mm represent (relative to top of pillar or maybe it means center of suspension rod)?
