Pic1:Thorens TD-160 Super w/Linn Basik Plus. Tweaks: There are some tapes on the tonearm to increase damping. As the result, more bass on the bottom end. I also add two padsat the two corners to absorb the vibration from the cover.

Although there might be more room for upgrading the VPI 19 Jr, I am satisfied with the current setup. I could live with that for awhile. My analog rig beats my digital setup handy.
Very musical and transparent
Not enough of bass and slam on the bottom end
