Acoustic Signature Challenger turntable

Now, the main source is from this turntable which was bought used from a Singaporean. The TT is equipped with its own outboard power supply unit which outputs 12VAC (frequency adjustable) and preset at 2 speeds 45 & 33.3 rpm. It replaces the Linn LP12/Ittok LVII that has been around since 1980 and still performing well.

A Boston Audio Mat-1 solid graphite platter mat replaces the stock felt mat.

The tonearm is a unipivot Kuzma Stogi S bought from a friend in Penang. Cartridge options : Denon DL103R and Benz Micro 20E2L both moving coils. Phonostage is Japanese made Softone Model 4 which uses built-in step up transformers for MC inputs and 2 Sovtek 12AX7LPS tubes for amplification. The stock tubes have been replaced with NOS Mullard M8137s (CV4004). More on these later ....
