this is superb . The finish is amazing.. the sound is simply is sublime. The AO uniarm is so sensitive and a great price. .Urika just a huge leap from the prefix . I stuck with the dynavektor and it sounds bloody amazing. Thanks to peter and the guys at cymbiosis for a quality day and superb service. I am not going to get listening to my new record collection

A nice black Tangerine Karmen top plate would really set off that plinth. I think the pale colour of the maple plinth needs a black top plate for contrast.

It's all a personal choice but I think a dark plinth suits the bright work on top and vice versa
I'd have kept the Nima and got a Krystal to synergise with the Urika but :roll:

I agree jim - and I don't really like the mismatch between the Keel and the black Karmen, although I suspect that I could live with it 8)

I think that's a very big dog... Incident!

But by the sound of it your LP12 has survived well and my set-up too! :mrg: 8)

Ray - See you over the weekend and your LP12 too!
