For sale is my beautiful SOTA STAR Sapphire. Installed is a very pricey Eminent TechnologyTP 2 air bearing tonearm.
The plinth is African Koa wood. It is massive, weighing in at 50 pounds and is most stable. Easily balanced since it rests on 3 large metal cones.
The Star Sapphire includes a VACUUM PLATTER that secures an LP firmly on its platter with vacuum. The vacuum pump is viewable in the last image.
The Eminent TechnologyTP 2 air bearing tonearm is an engineering masterpiece, astraight line tracking tonearm for precise reproduction of analog records. The tonearm manifold was recently serviced and the air pump was confirmed acceptable by Eminent Technology.
Please see this review:
