Turntables are all about the engineering. Although there are exceptions, generally the better the engineering, the better the turntable; and the better the sound as a result. And this is engineering with a capital ‘E’; you could drive a tank over the Stabi M. But, although the suspicion would be this creates an over-engineered design, in fact it creates a turntable that makes many designs sound under-powered and under engineered.
So you are going to need a world-class system to fully realise the potential of the Stabi M (just finding an arm and cartridge suitably resolving to not hold the Stabi M back is likely to set you back several thousand pounds, and any speaker system less than full-range will miss much of the M’s joys), but the end result is like getting the keys to every studio control room in history. Very highly recommended.
