    Very nice Andrew.
    “Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    What's the cut out for the motor unit like? Is it similar to Russ Collinson, cut around the 401s innards or just the usual?

    The motor is decoupled. The plinth is built very snugly around the motor. The plinth weight ~50lbs.

    I thought so, must get hot in there with so little space, is it designed like that to just add more weight to the plinth?

    I've never heard of a Garrard deck overheating, and I don't think one has ever been reported in over 60 years of since production started.
