OMA has made custom slate plinths for a variety of turntables, including belt drives. Tables like the Platine Verdier and Teres are obvious candidates for slate and although we don't think slate plinths are right for every turntable (such as suspended designs) for many a slate plinth will greatly improve performance. Please contact us to find out more about designs and pricing.
Teres 300 series turntable with Kuzma air bearing tonearm in a massive slate plinth designed by our client, with a little help from OMA. Stillpoints are attached to threaded inserts in the slate footers.
The OMA Step Up Transformer (SUT) is specifically designed for low output moving coil (MC) cartridges.The low voltage output signal of these MC cartridges requires additional amplification before a tube phono stage, and a properly designed SUT is the best way to convert the current supplied by the cartridge to a higher voltage. Our SUT has a turns ratio of 1:10, appropriate for most MC carts with a medium internal impedance, such as Miyajima, most Ortofons, etc. The transformers are potted in a case of cast aluminum or bronze. Polished cases are available.
Aluminum, mill finish- $1,895
Bronze, mill finish- $2,295
