My tweak of the week on my SL-1210 MK5. A Funk Firm Achromat that was on a demo outlet sale. I'm spinning Midnight Blue right now I think there is an improvement in clarity and lower bass impact. Besides, it looks cool...

KWJ - very nice! If I were to "go Rega" would go with the P8. A very 'less is more' TT.

Very nice indeed. I had a Rega arm on my Mitchell 'table a while back. If I'm not mistaken its Techno Arm was a modified Rega RB300 arm. I wonder if the Groovetrace would have been compatible with that arm?

This week I replaced the sagging "elephant feet" on my VPI TNT Series III with the 3-inch feet from mnpctech and just a few bits of hardware. I'm not sure I'm using the best sized isolator in them right now but even this is a big improvement in stability. And the price was very modest by audiophile standards.

Very nice. Had to pass on a TNT MkIII recently as it is simply too wide to fit on my shelf.

However, I did order a Kuzma Stabi S (in black), which should be here early next month.

Well done Glenn, that’s a great table!

It's true that the TNT has a very large footprint. Good luck with the Kuzma!
