I failed to mention there is a Spyder review in this months Stereophile. Sorry, that's what I was referring to when I mentioned review in my post.

"Slightly on the warm side, and a very analog sound."
"but to my ears, quite different than it's DD sibling."
"The Bardo is a nice table, just not my cup o' tea."
Does that mean the Bardo is not as analog sounding? By the way, the Spyder uses a motor (Sinus) that's developed from the design of the Bardo. Maybe the belt's compliance adds a touch of "warmth" to the sound. Maybe.
