At least I think so. Kind of artsy.

Very nice Billo, looks great.

One thing though - are those CDs on top of your SDS!?!? I'm surprise the SDS didn't kick them off in disgust! :D

That could be the best looking MKIV table that I've seen.

I wish I had never sold mine, although mine had a piano black finish, I much prefer billo's classic looking natural wood finish, it's absolutely timeless, as evident by the picture.

Never had an opportunity to listen to a HW-19 with a JMW arm, but I imagine that the combo works very well. IMHO, you would have to spend a lot more to get a better sounding table.

Do you still have the table?

I do, the photo is recent. Clueless as to how it stacks up to todays offerings, I struggled with what to upgrade, table or speakers, and went speakers. Glad I did, the new-to-me Acoustic Zen Crescendo MKII's in the photo are mine for 2 weeks now and they are amazing! The Avenger is my new lust. I'm saving up for a previously owned one. Some day.

Very nice speakers, my neighbor has the same speakers but in a light burled type veneer. Very detailed sound plus they can play loud without compression.

That is very cool. Outshines many modern offering in my opionion.

What do you have going on underneath? What are you using for feet, and are those motor supports?

I ran a MK-IV with three different arms, an RB-300, an ET-2, and a Hadcock 242, and all were great performers, which showed how solid the HW-19 base was as a starting point. Like you, I wish I hadn't gotten rid of it. It would be interesting to see how it would stack up now.

Greta looking 'table!

Those are Edensound Bearpaws. They're a little pricey but they work and look much better than cones IMO. Those are inverted Bearpaws under the motor. My full list of upgrades is here:
