Nothing wrong with a bit of diversion imho.

The aesthetic is relevant even though SQ should be the arbiter - I would not have bought a Stiletto v1 due to the rounded corners, however good it sounded. I had heard the TP plinth was in development so I'm delighted that Roger has got it to where he is happy to release it.

Should be fun :smt023 8)

Yes well we sorted the rounded corner thing and everybody is happy about that 8)

However, for me another fab plinth is a double edged sword as where the heck am I going to put it!! Not to mention that these comparisons ought to be made at the Klimax level, so that's another Radikal/Urika/Keel/Se and Kandid :shock:

With the LP12 demo count now well past 20 maybe I could convert/lose one, but which one :smt017 They have all been on demo here in the last two weeks and by the sound of it I'll need another soon too! :smt018

:shock: Shocking display of porn without a warning. :smt018
I think with the long term credentials of Tiger Paw and also straight from the manufacturers price point this can only be the way forward for alternative plinth offerings.
Looks like one of Peters old lingo decks is due for a major upgrade. 8) :smt023

Jim - the cartridge bake off was to take a view about what is likely to be next, the Lyra Kleos SL is not ordered although I have asked for details on availability / lead in time as they are built to order.

The plinth on the other hand intrigues me. I love my Chris Harban Wenge. But is a metal plinth the way forward? I have not listened to a Stiletto. The Stratos potentially changes the dynamic to the extent that I want to explore the possibilities - but I do tend to take my time to decide as enjoy the journey 8)

As for what else next, I have heard rumours of a tone arm :smt023
