Vinyl, probably more than any other area of audio, is a festival of oddities. A trip to a audio show will reveal numerous alien-inspired turntables with crazy protrusions and copious amounts of bizarre materials. Much innovation for a medium that's been dead for ages, no?

Above is the Kuzma Stabi S table, a $2450 attack on traditional plinth TTs. The plinth, for those who don't speak audiophile, is the big base on most tables. Instead of a plinth, the Stabi S uses brass poles, as you can see in the pic below. The goal of the brass T is, unsurprisingly, to reduce vibrations and provide stability. Does it work?

The Kuzma Stabi S/Stogi S combination is a hands-down winner, and in my opinion, one of the world’s great turntable bargains. It played every piece of vinyl put to it with a welcome wink-wink nod-nod and proceeded to reveal the record’s true nature, good, bad or glorious.

Go read the American Wired review for more details and analysis on this bargain from, of all places, Slovenia. Table and the Stogi S arm can be purchased from The Music.
