Tantalising Turntables

Recommended Posts

What happened ? Did you buy into that "CD is forever" business?

No way, where's that bar of soap!!. I'd rather give up sex than give up my turntables and LP's...

I was referencing the Goldmund to all the other beyond esoteric TT's that have shown up in this post.. most of which I have never heard of let alone seen! :rolleyes:

In this household it is LP>cassettes>CD in order of preference. CD's are good for kids and wife's.. easy to get the finger prints off.

Hey 2 Sheds when you release the coffee table book on TT I want one with your personal signature on it - I am just in love with all this audio porn. I want a book of it all to read evernight.

I wish.. like most things that turn up here.. i could barely afford the flyer or brochure:)

I did a short stint in audio retail, many many many moons ago :rolleyes:, and scrounged heaps of stuff out of the rubbish bins.. which is where this Goldmund brochure came from ;)

Likewise.. very hard to go grey if you are an eggshell blonde:D

Nope.. completely free of Nakamichi turntables :rolleyes:.. does a brochure for the TX1000 count??? about as close as I'll get ..Like most of what has been on show here.. waaayyy out of my price range.. especially as I will have to pay using the south pacific peso very soon ;)

Prefer my Garrards in anycase :o... I have a fondness for hulking great turntables with lotsa strobe markings.. makes 'em look techo :D

We have a lot in common. Eggshell blonde and hulking old turntables...:D

Andythiing,

You will be the very first to get an autographed copy :rolleyes: Although I am not so sure Mrs Thiing will want you to drool over the pages every night...;)

Good morning Shedsy, I was almost going to post the Acoustic Sigs myself, as they do appeal to me. I like their simplicity and smooth lines.

Cheers,

Jake

Jake,

Excellent turntables. And relatively good value.:rolleyes: They finally seem to be getting the recognition they deserve. They very rarely get bested in any direct comparison and are renowned to have a great sense of timing and musicality (not remotely clinical)

Baby brother of Raven AC, Raven One from TW Acustic of Germany. Same motor unit as the Raven AC.

Upgrade to add a second arm board and make the motor off board can be done to make it into Raven Two.

Who could forget Dave Whittaker, who for a number of years made the Aura.

I knew him and were building a new design sadly never saw the light of day,

may the force be with you Dave.

koma1.jpg

47 Labs Model 4724 Koma (Price around $12,000)

A marvel of innovative engineering. Two platters rotate in opposite direction providing a gyroscope effect and cancelling vibration. Each is magnetically levitated and the spindles feature a special metal which is impregnated with oil for permanent lubrication and almost zero friction. And the arm, don't let me start on the arm....:eek: A masterpiece of Japanese craftsmanship, and one of the best sounding turntables available today.
