My theory is, since both innovation and innovation compact; have the motor mounted on the plinth (however isolated in some way?), the CMB is very, very effective.

I had looked at Ada Lin's airbearing MG3 but I don't have time to do a kit now although I was prepared to accommodate another air pump, maybe under the listening room. Cool table bu the clear audio is more proven and a better long term investment methinks.

In my search for a new table, I did come across about 3-4 demo ClearAudio tables in case anyone is interested. Avantegarde Magnum, Solution 30mm platter AMG Wood, and a Performance SE magnum, maybe one more.
Beautiful table! You have a very interesting vinyl rig.

I have an Origin Live Sovereign Mk 1 on the way in. This is the original version of their top-of-the-line table and was about $6K when new, so I think it qualifies.

70 or 80mm platter?

bet it sounds wonderful!
post #143 of 256
doctorcilantro, It's a older 70mm platter.....What you can't see in the this photo is the Clearaudio "Accurate Power generator/speed controller".......That really made a difference in the sound, believe it or not........I'd tell everyone with a table who doesn't have a speed/power cond. to get one! I've seen some VPI guys' using theirs in this thread....For lack of a better term "It" tightens up the sound of your table/arm/cart.

Interesting, I probably won't get one, right away at least, given the literature on the Innovation. Mine is coming with a 70mm...not sure what they do 80mm on (but a CMB bearing upgrade is listed for 80mm platters is on Music Direct).

Is that a Lyra cart?

Yes, that's my Lyra "Helikon" mc.... I love the sound even over my back-up Clearaudio "Signature" mc..... It has alot to do with my phono preamp, "Chris Ivan Audio" tube unit, it uses 2 amprex SQ 7308 tubes, its power supply is a Tube "Lambda" out board unit..... "Chris Ivan Audio" Google him.....As for your Question about 80mm platters, I don't think There is one, BUT DO GET the CMB option!!! Money well spent!!!!OH! I do love the sound of this table combo! You'll go crazy with yours, good luck!

Rob, do you still have the Denon sitting in a box somewhere or did you get rid of it? I've been looking for a 59l and haven't had much luck finding one.

Congrats on the VPI by the way!

Oh, it's much more than in a box - it's all set up in my office One of the great advantages of working from home. I love my VPI, and it's the better sounding deck, but they will have to pry the DP-59L from my cold, dead hands. I will never get rid of it. Fortunately I actually have a way to still use it!

Meridian G08 here. Ray@RSA, and Jack @WooAudio also use them.

I need a VPI turntable.
