Tonearm mount to the plinth vs arm board vs rotating arm board vs isolated tower
My turntable however, sits on a HERZAN ACTIVE ISOLATION STAND which cancels all vibrations from 0.5Hz-100Hz.Very good - but I prefer my music full range, if I didn’t want to hear anything below 100hz I would listen to Tin Cans.Your herzan cant mov... 
Tonearm mount to the plinth vs arm board vs rotating arm board vs isolated tower
The base weighs 18 lbs (8.1 Kg)......But a SOLID GRANITE CRADLE, whilst not as heavy as cast metal.....was GOOD ENOUGH and relatively affordableReally - mines 68kg, and utilises SPZ which dissipates any energy between 4 and 100hz internally at a m...

Garrott vs Soundsmith
@nandric Everything has been covered here. Andreoli is an artisan, who I suspect gets bored with producing the same product over and over - once they have mastered or achieved their goals on a particular design, they then look for a new challenge....

FR66S vs Ikeda IT-407 vs FR66FX
FR64S is best bang for the buck. FR66 is better, but expensive to buy.66FX I have never heard, but is lighter mass and costs less to buy than 66S. 407 has mixed reviews - most folk believe the FR64S/66 are the best built, and sounding. There have ... 
FR66S vs Ikeda IT-407 vs FR66FX
