Kuzma Stogi S Turntable. One of the Finest of All Time.
Now at True Audiophile
All Kuzma arms are special order due to the many variations. Price as show is for the initial model. Brass or Black (w/lid but no brass clamp). Arm and cartridge NOT included.
Stabi S is Kuzma's smallest turntable with a design approach normally found only in more expensive models. Its unique shape and construction of solid brass rods, provide an extremely rigid connection to platter, bearing and tonearm support. There is no flat plate to resonate and transmit vibrations, only solid brass rods 50mm in diameter.
A second brass rod provides stability and the two are clamped together in a T shape. The motor is housed independently in its own brass tower which dampens vibration of the motor itself. A ground, flat belt provides drive from the motor pulley to the subplatter.
The bearing is of highly polished, fine grain carbon steel with a one point contact, while the bearing sleeve is of a resin/textile material which has excellent damping, non-resonant properties.
With a mat on top and rubber damping insert underneath, the sold aluminium platter provides a stable non-resonant platform for records.
An acrylic cover protects platter and tonearm while reflecting the turntable’s original shape. A 45 rpm adaptor is provided and is simply slipped over the 33 rpm pulley. The turntable can accommodate various tonearms by the use of different pre- cut brass plates and it allows for VTA adjustment on any tonearm mounted.
The whole turntable is supported by an optional high density plywood plate.
This turntable has many options. Please email or call for various upgrades.

What Hi-Fi awards Stabi S one of the best 15 turntables of all time
Kuzma Stabi S/Stogi S (2010)
A uniquely designed turntable, Kuzma's Stabi S is a minimalist, beautifully engineered piece of kit. Its unipivot design, silicone damping system and two-piece counterweight on its arm - to name but a few design choices - all help it deliver top-notch sound quality.
Insightful, dynamic and natural-sounding, able to deliver vocals with real passion: this turntable is something special.
