Here is a photo if my Classic Signature. It’s been getting all the love while I wait for my new Tonearm for my Prime Signature

I enjoy my Classic Signature just about every day. A true "Classic" in every way.

I for one would be interested in your comparisons between this deck and the Prime Signature.

I actually own both the Prime Signature & Classic Signature. They both have the same exact upgrades and I find myself listening to my Prime Signature more. It probably doesn’t have to do anything with sound just looks beautiful. I tried both Tuentables with the same Tonearm and Cartridge but just by ear I couldn’t tell the difference. I’ve been meaning to get more technical and rip to my computer to really see the difference but haven’t had the time.

Thank you for your observations. I have to admit, the Prime Signature is an Eye catcher. I've been happy with my Classic for some time now, I think I'll just continue to be happy with it :)

IMHO, the Classic Signature is one of the best buys in used audio.

Johnathan, Thanks. Very nifty design. I wonder how well the cleaner works. Rich

As a cleaner/duster, it's okay. IME, its greatest benefit is static control.
