Pretty looking deck, I had a 'S' arm back in the 80's (ACOS/REGA but I can not remember the model) but not as nice looking as the Alphason

Thanks Mr Onion & Dan, I think I had one it was the Planer 3 with the RB200 arm which I think was from Acos, very musical and warm combination.

The Alphason is 36 years old, I had it rewired and bearing check / service a few years back via J7 at Audio Origami. :smt023

Now then - Is it 'updated' primary LP12 or your second one - of course it could be both with parts on primary transferring to secondary as they get changed?????

Anyway always good to hear whatever it turns out to be .............. :smt023

Maybe neither 😎 The main deck is staying the same. This was to be a new LP12 to replace the study deck - but it’s evolving in advance of it arriving, who knows.

Nice looking LP12, and it will certainly benefit from having a Tramp if its living on top of that cabinet. The Karousel will be a fantastic lift to performance as well.

Lovely looking deck Adam.
Super grain on the plinth and that cart on the end looks very industrious and business like.
