The design is simple but it is captivatin for any audiophile like me. It has a solid build which makes it a good buy for the long term. I think it is an investment that you should make if you are looking to get clear cut recordings.

The MC is now such a hit it is backordered in the whole of The Netherlands.

Can't wait!

Canceled my backorder and went for a wood MC.

This table swings!
