I have a Stibbert MK2. I initially had some problems with the transport. It made an awfull ticking sound when you played it. Once I opened up the case I saw that the transport supports had loosend up in shipping and made the transport way out of level. So I got the case level, then leveled the transport by adjusting the supports and volla! The player sounded wonderfull and didn't make this awful ticking noise while it was playing (the guy who had it before me was told it was normal by the dealer)! I further had a hunch the player would actually sound better not in the bulky plexiglass\case support system. I set it up on a wood platform and I was amazed how much more musical it sounded and how it was transformed into a wonderfully open sounding eligant Italian player. Finally I added some 1960's NOS Telefunken Cca's. All I can say is it is the best sounding strictly redbook player I have ever heard!!! I like to tube roll so this is the perfect player for that.
