I just finished overhauling a classic Well Tempered turntable for my basement work area and it sounds excellent. I bought this used from my favorite audio shop, Soundscape in Baltimore (Polk's very first dealer!) and couldn't be happier. They were terrific to deal with, it's a treat having such a helpful group of audio enthusiasts in our town.
I polished the plinth and got rid of some small scratches and spruced up the "piano-like" finish. I completely dissembled the tone arm and cleaned it up and re-strung the arm. I replaced the damping fluid and installed a Sumiko Pearl as a "learner" cartridge until I feel comfortable with setting up the overhang, tracking force etc. It came with a Grado Sonata in beautiful shape and that will be the eventual cartridge. But it sounds amazing so far!
