Sme new platter material???

I was just over at SME's web site to see if anything had changed, and to my surprise all the decks have black platters.

Does anyone know the score??

I didn't believe this, so I took a look. Yep all black. I had a SME 20/2 for years. It's a great table. I suspect this is more than cosmetic...
Just phoned SME it is cosmetic in that their supplier of the isodamp material no longer produces it in the mustard colour.

Looks quite cool I think, may have to get my model 20 platter recovered.

Jrmanders - I have heard through the grapevine that there will be a major upgrade to the model 20 this fall although I have not heard the particulars. Stay tuned.
Yes I have also heard the same thing. Think it will be a new model though, no retro fit.
