In praise of the mighty SOTA Sapphire

Here's a new post from Steve's Audio Blog on the enduring value of the SOTA Sapphire turntable.

Enjoy!  😊
Thanks for the post, which I'll keep for future reference.  I've got a Sapphire that I bought in 2004 which I use for mono records. (Arm is a Graham 2.2 and cartridge is an Ortofon Cadenza Mono, which replaced a Lyra Helikon Mono that crapped out way too soon). The current set-up still sounds great, although it doesn't have all that many hours on it.
Yes,its a very fine tt,im still happy with mine.A little maintanance  now and then,thats it
