PS: Mr. T is 100% correct, now that I think about it.
Frank did have an IKEA table, because he knows we have ghetto glass Korean stands.
He placed a heavy piece of wood on top of the IKEA platform, then the turntable.
I saw the inside of the table. The vintage unit that it was based on was not sold in the US. No idea what it was.
Cart was a Denon in a wood shell.
It sounded pretty good.
