I understand Coffee is expensive in Europe?

Is that material black granite or is it synthetic?

Sincerely,

Ralf

Civet coffees i assume. The original Le Platine notwithstanding i don't think granite makes a great TT base. Or great anything audio related. Would have made a nice coffee table if it wasn't for all the holes.

Hi Ralf,
The material is real granite, not synthetic. In fact, when I had explained to Mr Gomet, owner of the company, my project, and that I just wanted 2 pieces of granite, even not well cutted, he has understood my "fanatisme" about vinyl sound, and decided to realise the platines for really the price of 3 or 4 cup of coffees for his employees. I really give him 20 euros and a very good bottle of French "Medoc" red wine (2003 year).
