Best turntable under $4000
A lot of childish posts here…geez.    
If you had $12k / £10k to upgrade your analogue front-end...
I think you would do quite well with a P8 or P10 and a phono stage in your stated price range (perhaps consider used for the phono stage for even more value). I listened to several tables costing much more (high mass) than my P10/Aphelion 2.  I wa... 
Anyone who owns a Technics SU-R1000, can you answer a quick question
Great to hear jsqt

I doubt anyone here knows what “40 on the volume knob” means on that device or in the context of your listening system.  How bad is the noise on the phono stage input at normal listening volume?  Btw, I don’t think I have heard a phono stage input...

Would be more interested to hear from @metaldetektor .  Since he/she did not provide any positive opinion, I would assume they did not like the speakers.  If I had to additionally guess from the comments about listening carefully, perhaps because ...

@johnk, can you elaborate? Thanks.  
Acoustic Signature turntables
@rsf507 , I demoed two tables (Kuzma Stabi R and Acoustic Signature Tornado).  Quite hard to say anything relevant about the demos as I was completely unfamiliar  with both systems.  I did not hear any “red flags”.  Surface build quality on both t...

Bias could be off.  Check to see if the amp is biased correctly per the service manual or have someone check it.  
Luxman 595ASE
Thanks!  
Acoustic Signature turntables
@mijostyn , thanks for your comments Multiple motors are indeed a major concern with the AS tables although possibly better for bearing life as the pull on the bearing is minimized. For magnetic bearings, do they have any possibility of changing... 
Acoustic Signature turntables
Thank you all for your comments.   @rsf507 , I finally saw two Acoustic Signature models today and listened to a system with one playing.  Quite interesting to see in person.  Beautiful, impressive tables.  Lots to like. @lewm , thought you woul... 
Acoustic Signature turntables
Thanks for the comments everyone! I do have a chance to listen Acoustic Signature and will be doing this tomorrow (either Hurricane or Tornado). Always a leap of faith, though as the tables are in a different system than mine. That is why I am fo... 
Luxman 595ASE
Luxmancl38, may I ask which dealer?  As I am in New England and interested in this amp…  
The Luxman L-595A SE integrated is coming.
Rman9, good luck.  Hope you like the 595 and would be interested to hear what you think?  
The Luxman L-595A SE integrated is coming.
Rman9, yes the Luxman class A integrateds move into AB beyond their rated class A power.  Such is why they can be used with power hungry speakers.  Even the non class A amps (509, for example) are class A up to a certain point.  The 509 is class A...
