"Oh gosh I had a Phase Linear anti-pop and tick "box" just to get rid of those nasty things!!"


It's called cleaning your vinyl.  I rarely ever hear a tick or a pop...

I have one of those Flame Linear boxes sitting on a shelf.
I'll have to break it out and give it a go.

For pops and ticks a real record cleaning machine is the way to go.
Without one you'll ALWAYS have pops and clicks, with one and a good album probably not.
I use an old VPI 16.5 and then give the side being played a quick swipe with a damp Discwasher with really good results.

I have quite a few pieces of their gear, 6 actually, and am intrigued by the Sol for the simple reason I have always wanted a twin-arm table so I can swap from stereo to mono and back quickly.
The Sol looks like it will afford an easily swappable arm mounted with a second cartridge and minimal fuss.
I got to check it out in person today at RMAF, still think I want it, but will wait for some real user reviews to roll in.
And, as another poster mentioned, there will most likely be some sort of revision in the future, being patient might pay off, but again, will be more predicated on real user feedback, I am not that patient typically.

I am glad turntable was sold to beta testers or it would never come out and remain in the lab forever.  A lot of feedback from users on other forums.  Sol undergoing changes to make it better.  One day in 2020 or maybe 2021!  Patience will be rewarded and the final Sol will be released.

The Sol will be re-released next month. I'm glad they are giving it another go. It all goes to show just how much work is required to design and market tables and why so many companies choose to either outsource some variation of the same model and rebrand, or stick to the most basic design possible in-house (of course while telling you it's because simpler sounds better).

Does anybody know if Sol can use different brands of tonearms?  That will make Sol very versatile.

The SOL turntable will only work with their unipivot arm. The arm was recently redesigned during the beta for original purchasers. The new arm has the a longer headshell and slightly shorter shaft, same length over all as original. Im still using the original arm. Im very happy with my table.
