I've wanted to get my hands on one of these babies for a long time! The articulated tonearm is a unique approach to tangential tracking, the build quality is awesome, and it's gorgeous. The sound isn't anything to write home about at the moment, but I know the problem is a mediocre Shure cartridge. I have an Ortofon X3-MC high output moving coil that I hope to install soon. I'll keep you posted.
