    Very nice indeed Tony, the amp looks a beauty. I recognise that turntable. Where did you get the board it is standing on?

    Thanks James,

    The board is one of those American Maple Boos Chopping Boards.

    I got it from Amazon via some kind of import shipping thing.

    I plan to oil it sometime if I can ever get off my arse!

    Haha, there is always something else to do. I have been looking for a maple wood board like that but twice as thick.

    I went with this one because one ot was more affordable than some that the VPI bods use and two I quite like the rounded edges which make it look less like a chopping board.

    I then got some cheap heavy rubber matting from ebay to isolate the motor which seems to work well.

    I love my VPI, best bit of kit I ever bought. I would love one of the new rosewood jobbies but they're big money!

    Looks made to fit Tony. Just had a look and Boos does a 3 inch thick board, bit OTT I think. Yes the higher VPI turntables are wondrous things of beauty especially the Avenger

    I guess it depends where you would put it. A 3" board on top of a solid sidetable may work well. Stick on my wall shelf and I reckon it would pull it off the wall. These boards are really heavy!
