I adopted another orphan turntable today.

An interesting thing about this table is its plinth. Unlike a lot of tables of the era, its not a veneered hollow box filled with electronic gizmos. There really aren't a lot of electronics to it, its pretty simple underneath. But what is most interesting to me is that its a solid plinth. Solid HDF under the nice thick real-wood veneer. The thing is heavy, probably 35lb even though its not very big. The HDF is hollowed out in a few spots to accommodate what electronics it needs, otherwise its just solid as can be.

As it should be. One can go crazy with materials choices and huge piles of mass, but I'm pretty sure that after a point there are diminishing returns.
