I’m loyal to light and rigid, so my TMS 3 rests on a thin MDF platform, modeled on Roksan’s Upgrade Plinth. Supporting all, is the company’s tall, triangular stand. I was surprised by the improvement offered by the Vertere Pulse B cable that now links the TMS 3 to its Caspian DX2/DS1.5. Touraj contends that a Vertere SG-1 Motor Drive trumps that of the 3 and I hope to hear that soon, maybe with a Pulse HB link.
I’ve yet to try it on my TMS 3, but an A.R.T. Audio Q-Damper resting along the main bearing – tone arm pivot axis of the original TMS was remarkably effective.
