STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 and STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000

With the STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 and STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000 solutions, two exceptional products from the Canadian company STABLE 33.33 are available.

Helpful accessories for handling records

One could describe the two solutions STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 and STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000 as a kind of temporary storage place for records, namely when one handles the record in any way.

This could be when changing a record, but also when cleaning a record.

When quickly changing from one record to another, you can place one of the records on the STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 and STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000 systems for a short time, instead of placing it on the cover next to the drive, as is often the case.

When cleaning the record, you can place it on the STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 or STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000 instead of on the turntable and clean it here. This is very practical if you are playing another record at the same time.

Developed for own needs

As is often the case, the idea behind the two systems STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 and STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000 was born from the developer’s own experience. Sylvain Pichette.

STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 or STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000

Both products are very similar, at least in form and function, but not in terms of the materials used and thus the weight.

The STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 is made of plastic, namely Delrin. This is so-called polyoxymethylene, also known simply as POM. This material will probably be familiar to many vinyl lovers, as it is often used in the manufacture of record players due to its special properties. In this case, however, it is not essential, but rather that the material has a comparatively high density, which means that the STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 weighs 190 g for a stable hold.

The standing surface of this solution has a 5 mm felt layer, so that even sensitive surfaces are protected.

For the eye, a wood finish is applied to the top, whereby this is offered in different versions.

The STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000 is much more solid, because it is made of stainless steel, which makes the 5 mm thick felt layer on the underside all the more important. Here, too, the top has a real wood surface, whereby you can also choose between different versions.

By the way, the STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000 weighs in at 994 g, so it is a truly robust solution.

Both solutions are handmade in Canada, which is also worth mentioning here.

The price is € 119 for the STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 and € 219 for the STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000.

Getting to the point

Admittedly, the first question that came to our mind when we saw the STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-7000 and STABLE 33.33 Transit Platter SP-8000 was why this is needed. On closer inspection, however, it quickly becomes clear that we are dealing with a thoroughly interesting accessory for vinyl lovers. Even if it is certainly not an essential tool, these trays, handcrafted by STABLE 33.33, can be extremely practical.
