All of the upgrades can be purchased separately as funds permit. This makes the Stabi S and extremely versatile and long lasting investment.
Stabi SD is shown above with Stogi S tonearm and Jelco tonearm, which are available separately.
Why the big gap between Stabi S and Stabi Reference? We have asked ourselves this question too! The answer becomes clear when you actually see and hear the Stabi S. Franc Kuzma has done such a brilliant job of engineering this turntable that it is extremely difficult to better it at any price up to the Stabi Reference. Hence your money is better spent in purchasing a state of the art cartridge or tonearm than spending more on the turntable. The competition at this price point uses cheap materials to keep the price down. Franc does not do this, the materials are top quality and so is the sound. We invite you to compare the Stabi S specified to an equivalent price level with any new turntable under $10k and be surprised at the result. You can start with a basic Stabi S with Stogi S or Stogi CE tonearm and gradually upgrade it with a higher spec tonearm like Kuzma 313VTA or 4point. Then when you are ready for the next step we can transfer your tonearm to a Stabi Reference or Stabi XL turntable and trade back your Stabi S. Puremusicgroup is always willing to trade back Kuzma products we have sold if you are upgrading. Your investment is protected well into the future.

From Stereophile July 2008 “Analog Corner”.
“When, back in July 1999, I reviewed the innovative cylindrical-plinthed Stabi S (Stereophile, Vol.22 No. 7), it was among my favourite turntables regardless of price.”
“…..the sound of this little pipe bomb is spatially rock solid, and dynamically about the best under-USD$5000 ‘table I can think of.
If the single-arm version will do, your USD$2800 gets you a great deal of sonic performance and a fine-sounding unipivot tonearm that…..is both versatile and ergonomically pleasing”.
