Classic 4 Purchased

Classic 4 Purchased

Postby MOON » Wed Feb 27, 2019 6:38 pm

I am upgrading from a Prime. I bought a classic 4 in rosewood with 12 inch 3DR arm, dual pivot, hrx pulley, 3 belts and sds speed controller. I am walking on air, very excited. This will be my last table.

I was very happy with the Prime. It's a great table. A friend of mine bought it. He is pretty happy too. My wife said , why doesn't Rob buy the table you are looking at and you keep yours. Where's the fun in that?

Thanks Brf for suggesting the classic 4 purchase in another forum topic where I laid out the 4 options.

Great purchase Moon! You will love this table. Imho and ime, it’s a big upgrade over the Prime. I’m not sure if you’ve seen a C4 in person, if not, you will be blown away with both the sound and quality of build.

Got the classic 4 up and running today. It sounds and looks fantastic. I am not going to post impressions right now to being very sick and not feeling very well .

Awesome and congrats! feel better soon as well. That looks to be the Walnut plinth and not the Roseweood (I actually love the Walnut gloss). Also, is that the step pulley? You stated it is the HRX pulley in the original post and didn't look like it, unless there were different versions. Enjoy my friend - that is a superb table!

Actually, it definately is rosewood. Just a lighter coloring of it. It's definately the hrx pulley. It's straight, not 2 stepped and I do have the 3 belts on it.

Lucky, I read on the forums here about putting talcum powder on the belts to eliminate belt squeal. I did that and dead silence. It's quite a step up soundwise from the prime I had which I still think is a great sounding table in itself.

I am still waiting to see what the 2nd generation ads will be like.
