Top turntables?

Which turntables bring out the most from our vinyls.
The presence ambiance, that "you are there" feeling.
I am looking to upgrade from an old tnt.
I just brought home my Basis Signature 2500 table. It was an upgrade from the 2001. The inital impression is one of awe. It does everything you stated with brillance. I think the Basis line gives you alot for the money.
You'll likely get as many answers as there are turntables, so keeping with that spirit, I love my Origin Live Sovereign paired with the Origin Live Conquerer tone arm. The combination produces a great solid yet open and crisp sound in a small footprint. Very interesting and simple mechanical design. Good luck.
As it is mentioned, many different posts, I have to say the Transrotor Apollon that I won with 3 motors, TMD, Magnetic Drive, 80MM platter, 24vdc outboard motor controller, SME V and Benz LP does it for me.
like any component, its a matter of what you like, and one's opinion about 'where' is 'there'. If my friends are 'there', they are probably listening to ipods anyway, and the vinyl is recycled.....the day any stereo component puts you so 'there' that you can smell the 'pot' burning, let me know.
