A Beauty piece for sure.
Your Pioneer screams quality Skylab - you can see the P3 DNA trickle down. I love the quality Japanese direct drive TT. They sound fantastic too.
Solid table Sky, I put it right up there with my old Denon DP47F DD

Are you using LM grease on the idler bearing? I find it reduces residual rumble significantly. BTW: which record weight are you using? Do you find it improves the sound?
My weight is less weight and more spindle clamp, old Rek-O-Kut sorbothane puck with bubble level inset
I just got a new U-Turn Audio table (local mfg from Boston) and while not anything outrageous, sounding sweet from my vintage 80's Sony receiver.
Lovely to look at. They seem to do many things right. Thanks for the nice pic.

I’ve just switched to a Clearaudio (orig. Souther) “Clever Clamp”. It looks cheap and nasty, but works extremely well. It holds the LP perfectly flat whilst adding little mass of its own. Recommended for all Garrard users...
Their actually very good and not too expensive, about the only kind of clamp I can use on my Well-Tempered Amadeus because the spindle post is so tall I can only use a pass through type like the clever. Another good part of the clever is it virtually puts no weight on the spindle and taking a chance of wearing down the bearing faster. On tyhe other hand if I were a girl table I'd absolutely love the Amadeus
Why does the spindle need to be so long? Can you fit a second platter on top as a kind of über-mat?
I can’t imagine that it’s for an autochanger
Apparently the Clever Clamp was designed by Souther to fit under their parallel-tracking arm, which is now distributed (or is it made?) by Clearaudio.
Well I'm clueless and really don't see any explanation of/for it from the WT Website, I do see they have changed the tone arm and how the Golf ball is mounted as my Amadeus has the same arm that is only on their Simplex MK2 now. I see nothing in the design philosophy as well unless the stainless steel spindle needed to be that long for the zero clearance aspect of the design
Looks a bit like Garrard we have at our HQ. Cool stuff.
Nice, this ones in a music room in Little Rock. As a matter a fact we had a little Infected Mushroom party on it this past weekend
