From a "The Absolute Sound" review by Spencer Holbert"
The Wow XL is one solid piece of precision German engineering.

The plinth is a beveled design about the same thickness as the platter, though it is a combination of aluminum and wood (the wood is masked by the outer shell of the plinth). Three height-adjustable feet allow for easy leveling of the entire ’table.

The platter alone weighs fourteen pounds and is over one-and-a-half inches of solid aluminum; it could probably be used for home defense, if necessary.

Be ultra-careful as you slide the platter spindle into the bearing, as the fit is a bit snug. The heavy weight of the platter can easily pinch a finger, so make sure to drop it in while holding the outer circumference.

The bearing is Acoustic Signature’s “signature” Tidorfolon bearing, which is the same proprietary bearing design used in all AS turntables, including AS’s flagship Ascona turntable reviewed by Jonathan Valin back in 2012.

Luckily, you don’t need to spend $34k to benefit from the bearing technology employed in this ’table.
