Both of the solid one inch thick Panzerholz armboards are matched for a perfect fit and mated to the massive plinth using non magnetic machine stainless steel set screws. The Panzerholz armboards will accommodate most nine to twelve inch tonearms.

The main outer solid aluminum platter lip has been stripped of any old residue and lightly hand buffed. The SP10's main bearing has been inspected, micro polished, re-oiled and checked for flaws. Residual main bearing noise is eliminated with through the use of a shielded bearing drain block and solid Brass rod then covered with a matching cover plate. Brand New premium Nichicon capacitors were installed in the critical areas of the SH-10E power supply using only Cardas Silver Solder throughout for long life and speed consistency. Brake removal modification has also been performed. Post restoration, our SP10 MKII's main control boards and logic circuits are thoroughly tested for speed stability and proper functioning. Finishing off the entire restoration entails utilizing the proper isolation devices, Stillpoints Ultra AL's and a brand new 16 oz. machined aluminum turntable clamp . This is a reference caliber turntable which easily holds its own with analog front ends costing many thousands more.
