Here is my final development plinth for the new 1200 series Technics TT’s. Over three years of testing different materials and designs and I’m finally happy. A lot of what I learned from THE BEAT SE went into this puppy. The performance and sound are outstanding. And a great value IMO.
This unit has been used on and off over the last two years so it is used but never abused. Being a prototype, it has a few parts inside that are hand made instead of CNC’d but the sonic quality is 100% there. It is priced well below a new XX which will be $15k. This one has the real carbon fiber front panel and everything else like the thick aluminum chassis and internal damping capability that the production unit has.
It deserves a great tonearm and cartridge. You will be rewarded with world class sound.
This unit uses a 1200G motor which is designated by the "XX" logo. The "XX" should be my most popular unit. So close sound wise to the "XXX" (which uses the 1000R motor) I see no reason to spend the extra money. A big surprise but that’s what we hear.
Very compact. 18.5" wide, 15" deep 53 pounds
Custom platter uses the same materials as THE BEAT SE
