that was my hope! the Zu weighs 14 grams -- do you think that gets me in the ballpark, mass-wise? (i think it sounds great, in any case...)

Looks cool - liking the simplicity

If you can't go with stands for the speakers, 4 small semi-circular sorbothane feet under each speaker will help in reducing vibration into your deck.

Up top is a Stiletto LP12/Ekos SE/KARAT 17D3/Naim CDS, in the middle fresh from Darran at Class A is a mint 32.5/180, I'll do shots of those another time.

What we have here is synergy which of course makes a great sound.

I bet that is a really fun system. Love the room, nice looking bit of furniture and do you remember what paint you used? Got that classy Craig & Rose look about it, would love to know which one.

You might be interested to know how much better they sound on these than a high mass tripod design.

TBL I can post pics and I wish you a HNY.

I'm entirely unconvinced - is that what you meant......?

Sorry, but I really couldn't build you, or anyone else, any stands, as I explained (they really are a massive PITA to make) - sorry if this pissed you off but that is the case!

It's not the case at all Mark, I tried them on some high mass tripod stands, and then I came up with this design, so much better, others think so too and they look better to boot; in keeping with their '70s vibe.

I know you like to tinker and always think you are right, you might be tempted to stick your magnetic bearing on our old top plate or redesign a flat sub chassis or a speed controller.

That said I wish you a Happy New year.

The manual for the Aro states that it can take carts up to 12 gm so 14 is a bit over actually. I also have the Zu 103 and an Aro. The heavier Aro counterweight sounds better I think.

Currently I prefer the Denon 103 Pro which has the same weight as the standard 103 but with better compliance. However there's not a huge difference between this cart and the Zu. I love them both and don't feel the need for a 'better' (read: more expensive) cartridge.
