When I bought the TT I did not know what the plinth was made of I just assumed wood.

Problem I see with mass is it lowers the resonant frequency and low frequencies have far greater amplitude than high frequencies. These low frequencies get modulated onto the signal so adding a subsonic filter on the output of the TT does nothing. They need to be damped before they get to the TT, this seems to be where resin/bentonite works well.

Annoying stupidity to pack a TT like that. I bought two from the BBC some 25 years ago, fortunately I then lived about 5 miles from the store. I had them collected by a proper taxi! No problems.

"low frequencies have far greater amplitude than high frequencies"

Huh? I think what you said is not what you intended.

I think the Denon arm is toast, I am not familiar with this arm but it is quite loose at the rubber damper.

Anyway I have just given the eBay seller a serve and we'll see how they respond. They do have 100% + feedback with a couple of 1000 transactions.

I made a couple of jigs with 235mm hole centres to mount the EPA-100, it's not ideal but at least got me spinning vinyl.

WOW even with this not ideal setup it sounds far superior to the RP8 and Apheta 2.

It tracks all but the most heavily modulated track on the HFN test LP although I did have to increase VTF to 2.0g. I have the EPC205C mounted with a Jico SAS/B stylus. Can't wait to get the bentonite plinth finished.

10 inch tonearm fit best, pleasing to look at.

Previously I was using Jelco 750E 12" and it was too far away from the centre, I had to custom made another base to mount it, and when using it obstruct the dust cover and had to be permanently removed.

That is an EPA-100 it is a 10" tonearm. But I had to mount it further back so it fit in the hole in the plinth, this made the arm loser to the SP10 frame.
