    Would like to se more of a close up, though. Could you take some more pics? Especially showing more of the cartridge and arm

    Top notch, Mike. The red vinyl really sets it off! So how's that sounding as a combo? Should be impressive!

    Anyone who plays vinyl that is not black should, IMO, be disqualified from the competition.

    Really happy with how it looks and how it sounds, I liked my modded 1210 but always thought the looks let it down, yeah I know that shouldnít matter but this looks in a totally different league, took me a long time to come around to the square shape of the SP10 but now that I see it all together with the, plinth, feet, arm and headshell Iím delighted with it.

    Sounds great too and Iím totally settled on the vinyl side, in fact Iíve not bought any kit in ages, couple of spare cartridges and vinyl is all Iíve bought lately and not been posting much as Iíve just been listening, very happy bunny here

    Nah - only kidding. It's a lovely looking combination.

    I just have a dislike of records that are not black.
