Tenor Top Plate

Tenor Top Plate

The Tenor Top Plate is a more robust and stiffer replacement for the standard LP12 top plate whilst retaining the traditional stainless-steel look.

Standard LP12 top plates are thin and prone to picking up air-borne and motor vibrations which can feed into the cartridge, distorting music. They are also susceptible to bowing over time throwing the spring bolts out of true.

To remedy this, the Tenor Top Plate is a sandwich construction with an aluminium underside making it substantially thicker and stronger. Between the two metal layers is an AVDC insert trapping masking vibrations.

All of the top plate fixing bolt heads are hidden under the platter when assembled.

“Im ecstatic with the result. It looks fantastic, sounds fantastic and I just want to keep on playing records.”

“Everything just sounded “right” after installing the Serene II Alto upgrades. There was more insight into the musical intent of the performer/composition. It revived our enjoyment of listening to our LP collection.”
