Well Tempered Amadeus


I am curious if anyone has heard this turntable/arm combo? The reviews I have read are practically over the top with praise using terms such as nearly perfect, can't be beat for the price etc... If anyone has heard it, how might it compare to say the Scoutmaster.

Cheers

Hi Guys,

I do need to make one correction. The plinth of the Amadeus is not Baltic birch. It is Medite. They had intended early on to use Baltic birch, but the decision was made to change that before production began. Unfortunately the literature describing the turntable was not changed.

Sorry for contributing to the confusion.

Hi Jim!
I'm not confused, I'm just enjoying the table.
Oh, and nothing against the dynavector arm, I just want the whole Firebaugh experience as he designed it. I used to have the WT Classic and then the WT Ref. And now with the Amadeus, you hear the culmination of his ideas, and I just love it. It totally surpasses tables I've heard. And it doesn't matter the finish--the table itself, and the sound of the table, is the same.
Charlie,

There is no doubt that the WTL arm is much easier to use than the Dynavector is. The fact that Firebaugh has done such a good job of addressing resonance problems with the standard Amadeus has made it competitive in that respect with more expensive designs.

Maybe the DV 500 version is not on sale in the US yet, but Dynavector Japan is listing it as an available product:

Go with the synergy of the Amadeus. Firebaugh all the way!
