Nightmare indeed. But what is a customer to do in this situation to ensure a fair and positive outcome?

Yikes, I can only hope sharing your experience is somehow therapeutic.

Keep us posted.

That's unfortunate, I've always admired their attention to detail and a couple times thought about picking up demo tables they've listed on AGon. For the price they're asking I would expect nothing short of the best service available.

That's what I expected too, naturally enough.

" I had a real sense of what I wanted. A table that delivered the reliability and build quality of the SME with just a little more drive, resolution, and life."

"There's just something about the look that captures a true 1960s vibe, a slightly modernistic sort of sci-fi groove that spoke to me as 'right'. The 301 might present the classic image of Garrard but the 401 hits my sweet-spot."

"... most folks told me the Conqueror was at least the equal and maybe even a step up from the SME V12 arm I might otherwise have stretched to attain (maybe, someday)."


What can you say.
