This is my personal Ortofon ST-104 plinth. The ST-104 is possibly the most stylish plinth for the TD-124 and it has been much copied over the years. This is a genuine 1960s example, made from pieces of beech wood, and finished in a lustrous but delightfully aged black lacquer, it looks and feels lovely. The gold Ortofon script badge sets it off perfectly.
It shows some very minor marks (see the pictures) but it is structurally perfect and the few marks are consistent with its age and very much ‘patina’. Genuine ST-104 plinths come up very rarely, so this is not a cheap plinth option!
