Brought the table yesterday with me to Tagaytay for assembly .... Alphonse Mouzon's Morning Sun now playing :)

@ Noly ... akala ko din nung una it was an S version ang nabili ng utol ko (Nad_Obed) ... straight arm pala which made me
happier :)

@ Doc Endrik .. maraming salamat.

Will post pics later ....

GORGEOUS L-78! :clap: :) Did you use narra for the plinth and painted it black and do you feel any need to upgrade the stock tonearm? ;)

Hello Doc,

The Narra plinth is still on stand-by, traced the pattern last night .. will endorse for woodworking maybe tomorrow. Also, I am retaining
the stock arm. Na out of stock kasi yung DL110 sa Needle Doctor due to production slow down daw sa Japan based on the email they sent,
so I'll try the 2M Blue in the coming days if it will match the arm.

Hi Real Top,

Yes ... I can hear the difference in sound comparing with the Thorens 166. And I also think the arm is not of heavy mass category
which is what we normally read on the net. I think it will match medium-mass/compliance cartridges as well. We'll see ... holiday
naman uli sa Wednesday :)

Nice work and nice touch Brod.
ES Teo would not be any happier if he could see his table now on a gorgeous narra plinth.
Remember, though the DL-110 is a HOMC, I heard it sing on a LENCO switched between MM and MC setting.
The difference is notably a full mile in between MM to a a natural MC setting.
You can test between a SS Phonostage (MM/MC) and Tube Phonostage. You'll know what I mean after.

Cheers, more happiness and joys to come....Merry Christmas! :D
