    This is a really interesting description, and it nicely puts into words some of the doubts and inchoate feelings I've sometimes had when comparing my P3 with the recollections I have of vinyl in other contexts. E.g. a flatmate's Thorens (with Quad and Rogers), many years ago.

    Philips long ago employed a logical solution to lateral sub-chassis instability in their 202 Electronic series. A lateral spring was employed opposite side from the pulley which could be adjusted to laterally balance the suspension. These decks could still be a bit unstable at 90º to this line though, so perhaps they should have employed two such springs in an equilateral triangle pattern with the pulley.

    P.S. Didn't someone on here experiment with lateral tension wires on Sondek?

    The new P3s are excellent. clever engineering, good bearing, great arm. Pair one with a Neo PSU and an Audio-Technica 500 or 700 series cartridge and you have an excellent fuss-free deck. Personally I would buy a Technics 1200GR, but if the Rega suits your needs / aesthetic preferences better go for it. I personally wouldn't bother with the LP12.
