If you are content with one arm and cartridge, Stabi M is a very good and as far as my experience, with the 4 point, a very neutral, and very easy to set up, calibrate combination. If you have pets, dust or kids, having the dust cover is god send!

Another happy owner of Stabi M here. Kudos to Franc Kuzma for setting up the TT, 4P tonearm and my ZYX Universe II cartridge in Slovenia! It took me around 1 hour to assemble the whole package. All the settings were perfectly done.

I’ve been listening to my analog rig for the last 3 days and have no desire to switch to digital. Anybody wants my 2 months old Lampi GG2:);)?

A very nice looking turntable indeed! What do you think of the Kuzma Ebony Record Weight/clamp?

Thank you, I am very happy with my analog rig:) I use the clamp all the time, it’s both aesthetically pleasing and beneficial sound wise.

I have both the standard and the ebony clamp as well as the Kuzma peripheral ring. Ebony clamp is better than the standard clamp and it works really well together with the peripheral ring. If I am critical listening/deep listening, I always use both.

Congrats! The wood plinth looks nice, too.
Afaik it is not wood, it still is the same material with a kind of wood veneer on it, just like composite aluminum materials they use on buildings etc.

Two years ago I tried to demo the Stabi M. No go at the UK dealer, as they prefer to sell the XL instead. Go figure. Lost sale. Instead I spent the M budget on weaponizing my current tt.

The wood finished plinth looks like 'walnut' is it real wood? As the black version is 'aluminium' painted black.

I'm afraid so. Noo
Wow! That was a real shame. Was that 'Audiofreaks' ?
Indeed so. I was told that my enquiry wasn't relevant. Sure, to their business model. 100% relevant to my needs.

Oh OK, Mr Branko Bozic. He's never been a very understanding kind of guy! Lol. I have had dealings with him myself. My opinion is, I don't think he was a huge fan of the Kuzma Stabi M because he always tried to push the Stabi XL, XL 2, XL 4 and XL - DC.

Hey, it's not my business (model). I was just made to feel a bit stupid for even asking. All I could afford was the M.
But as I said, it's not my business. I took mine elsewhere.
Shame, I've only heard good things about the M.

Yes, the Stabi M sure is a great sounding deck, and it will probably be my next turntable that's for sure.

It's in the bag! I just received an email from my Kuzma dealer saying that I can purchase his static demo 'walnut' version Stabi M, a great deal on it too, I do feel very lucky indeed. :)
