That's freakin' NICE!

That's one HELL of a nice TT, Bill. I'm surprised it doesn't allow for any kind of TT clamp. An outer ring, maybe but....

It's rare that I see a perfectly flat LP and my clamp does wonders to the sound. I wonder why they would do that.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

There might be enough clearance.

Wow, Bill! I did not realize that there was that much room under there. My clamp wouldn't fit but I do see now that they have allowed for a clamp. I suuuuuuure would love to hear one of those in action!

[EDIT:] Actually, looking back at the other photo it does look like it will fit any style clamp. See the photo below. It looks like it allows more room for a taller and possibly wider clamp in the down position...or maybe not...
