    Josie,
    Well chosen. The Trio L07D is IMO one of the best Japanese TTs ever made - miles better than the Scottish one touted back in the early 80s. Built like a battleship and sounds fabulous.

    Hi Barry.

    The main thing I've noticed is the pace/timing. It's so accurate without sounding mechanical. It doesn't add swing if that makes sense but it doesn't take it away.

    Its more 'as it is' rather than adding any interpretation.

    I'd say the Trio is more organic as it brings out more of the original euphoria. It really digs deep. It's an exciting listen for sure.

    The TD124 never added anything bad. That's why it's so good. It's a joyous deck and what it does is everything it should do if partnered with a good arm/cart.

    So, definitely a different flavour with both decks and both have their well deserved privileges and signatures.
