A little late to this discussion, forgive me, but having recently taken receipt of a Funk V I was keen to read about others' experiences. If you'll indulge me, my two penneth...
Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchase, especially so as it came about via an entre-nous deal with a distributor friend and I managed to beat him down to £350, at this price it's a ludicrously good deal.
Had I paid full price however, there are a couple of features that I think warrant attention. My Funk came with a little packet of O-rings to place the feet upon, this is clearly a spontaneous solution to the sorbothane feet allowing the table to lean. The material has been chosen for a reason and most likely contributes to the near-silent running but I think they could have been attached to the plinth in a more robust fashion. The shaky feel to the turntable as you switch on doesn't suggest solid build quality, although it's a (sort of) cosmetic quibble. On a similar note, I'd have also expected a slightly better power supply for my money than the default wall wart transformer that screams '£3.99 from Maplin'.
What is good though is very good - the thrust bearing and sub-platter are well engineered and here the quality isn't in doubt, the 'vector drive' makes perfect contact and provides a stable, silent rotation. I was sceptical about such a lightweight platter but it appears to perform beautifully. Fitted with an RB300 arm (attached in seconds, the VTA riser is another welcome addition) and Denon DL-160 cartridge I'm having an absolute hoot spinning records with it, it's a solid and convincing upgrade from my Planar 3.
I think this is an enjoyably revealing turntable that's a pleasure to listen to, at £760 it seems overpriced but had I got exactly the same sound from a more 'solid' feeling turntable I wouldn't call the price into question, the novel choice of materials is a double-edged sword in making for some authentic sonic gains against a somewhat 'plasticky' feel.
At the price I paid though, none of this matters. Two thumbs up!
