Earlier Notes:

 

With the introduction of the Schroder Model DPS tonearm into the system, it is now a new ballgame.  For example, in his own words - "The instruments have more natural decay and tones seem to be suspended while weighty".  The Manley Steelhead can accept two tonearms at the flick of a switch, which facilitates playing of both tonearms.
