Doug Olsen's TD125 MK II

Doug's description:

".......I have attached pics of my TD125 MKII with custom plinth constructed of 2 inch thick MDF, veneered with Rosewood.  It has moderate damping under the large platter and silicon treatment underneath around the motor and several places on the plinth's underside.  In addition, a male IEC plug is installed at the rear to accommodate different power cables.  The arm is an SME 3009 II improved with a Shure V15III cartridge.

The platter mat is Herbie's "Way Better Turntable Mat" which I have found to be far superior to the stock mat and another aftermarket mat I have tried.  The spikes are by FIM (First Impression Music).  "
