Photos: The G99 and tonearms shown in the photos are not part of the sale - plinth only
For sale is a brand new custom plinth to suit the Lenco G99 turntable.
This is a very complex and high quality, multi-layered composite plinth designed to get the very best performance from the G99. Furthermore, the G99 and armboard is recessed into the plinth, which required significant planning and work to achieve.
The plinth weighs 16kg and measures 470(W) x 485(D) x 117(H). The plinth is comprised of 3 x layers of 18mm plywood, 2 x layers of 18mm MDF, a single layer of 14mm Corian, laminated top and bottom and wrapped with solid 20mm jarrah fascia. The machined cutout is sealed with a bitumen coating for added dampening and to seal the raw materials - attached are pics showing the layers prior to completion. The plinth is very solid and rigid, and is supplied with 3 x blank, double laminated removable arm boards.
It is fitted with an IEC and 4 x M6 metal inserts to allow a choice in feet or spikes.
*****The Lenco G99 and tonearms displayed in the pics are not part of the sale, but was included to show how the plinth looks when set up.
Some may balk at the price, however, if you consider the prices of overseas plinths, many of which are quite basic and more bling than performance related, this is a bargain considering the attention to detail, significant amount of materials used and extensive labour. The use of 14mm Corian is a real game changer in regards to mass loading and dampening.
Prefer local pickup but may consider shipping.
