I doubt it. Garrard made two good turntables; the 301 and 401. And even they didn't sound good until you made a far heavier plinth than Garrard recommended. In case you think I don't like Garrards, I've used a 301 since I was 14.

..... counting that you're now 34 , that means that 301 is one good deck .......



(just in case - I'm enjoying with one 401 ..... )

Um, 49 next Tuesday. Yes, it's a nice turntable.
