TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS requires replacing the acrylic top plate (and sometimes the next layer down as well) but I don’t imagine that a new plinth top will break the bank to the same extent as a Linn Keel!
The dps 3 is the most composed and purposeful acrylic-plattered turntable I’ve heard. In fact it’s one of the best I’ve heard, full stop. Its levels of neutrality impose stiff demands on accompanying components and whilst that power supply is very expensive it also does a remarkable job. Which in its way, sums up the dps approach perfectly.
