Absolute Monster SAM Turntable


Has anyone tried the Absolute Monster SAM Turntable?
I´m using Dr. Feickert analogue Woodpecker, and would like to know if Absolute Monster SAM Turntable might be better.
Thanks!

How about a link to this obscure, garish piece.

6K shipped, and you get an MDF plater? What is you nice table lacking? Looks like an expensive boat anchor.

I envision weekends spent using a lot of Brasso polish.
Very "busy" looking and an mdf platter.  Better not get it wet or it will warp.  Chinese overkill.
stereo5-"Chinese overkill" more like Croation overkill.

There isn't any ridiculous blue LED embellishment to qualify.

I hope the poster was writing this post tongue in cheek?
I'm not so sure that it is overkill or bad. The designs don't look that bad and I would be happy to take one for a spin. 
SAM Reference TT is actually under rated, I have the SAM Reference that replaced my $15K Clearaudio Innovation Wood and I swear I’ll never go back to Clearaudio. Using the same Cart, the SAM TT is so much detail in sound and/or music. Yes, MDF Platter is right but the quality of the MDF they use at least for me, is way better than most aluminum platter out there. I wouldn’t judge this TT until you hear it. I gave the same judgment when I saw it for the first time but when I heard it from a friend who bought it before me, man was I wrong, I was  immediately amazed.

Just to update, I ended up buying the SAM Reference TT, and it's fantastic! Very detailed and opened sound quality!
It may be a great turntable. The engineering may be excellent. The design, however... um, de gustibus no disputandum.

In my view however, they should remove about 70% of the doo-dahs, rethink proportions, and stop thinking shiny metal is attractive because it's shiny.

A very 
superficial critique — and without even hearing it to boot — but TTs are also works of art, kinetic sculptures — and I was a professional designer — so I care about the aesthetics, crazy as that may be.
Have anyone had any experience with The Sinner? 
portoalegre...now that you've had some time with your SAM table what are your thoughts/feelings about it??  I also am considering the Reference table, hopefully with two arms, so your feedback would be appreciated...may help other vinyl lovers on here too.                                  Thanks!
With their earlier model of SAM I think guys are inspired by Micro Seiki.
