Garrard 301. 

Xavier's comments:

"...I bought this Garrard 301 grease bearing (yes, it's a grease bearing in spite of being cream) NOS about six months ago.  I stripped and oiled the motor and mounted it in a large 1 inch solid alder "plinth".  The plinth uses three 3/4" stainless steel rods machined into a point as huge spikes.  I also bought an NOS EMT 997 tonearm and a new EMT TSD15 tondose (cartridge).  The plinth was supposed to be temporary but I guess it's staying.

The sound?  I don't think it can get better than this...."
