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

I just traded in my ScoutMaster for an Amadeus GTA (from Jay at Audio Revelation, who has been super in supporting the decision and the setup).

So far, so good. I'm very happy with the new table, even though my VPI was pretty much maxed with SDS, periphery ring, etc. The WT has so much more life and sounds anything but sterile.
How do you find life without a cueing lift?
I have had my new Amadeus for about two weeks now. The tonearm is extremely light and damped and therefore quite simple to easily move and control for all functions. Because of those characteristics, it was an easy adjustment for me to make, going from a tonearm with a cueing lift mechanism to the Amadeus tonearm's spartan mechanics. And it is one hell of a turntable! YMMV, of course.
