When I began assembling my first ‘high end’ system thirty years ago (with the help of my then new wife’s Marantz receiver), other than Rega, a few prototype big dollar turntables, and a plethora of mainstream Direct Drive turntables, analogue pickings were fairly thin. I went with a Dual. I loved it.
Then, CD was introduced with the hoopla of the second coming and I got bamboozled like many others with the shininess of it all. Happily, the passionate advocates of our avocation continued their relationship with turntables and took the art to heights only imagined by us in the early ’80s. In the here and now and without thinking too much, I could rattle off 50 manufacturers of incredible, well conceived, brilliantly executed turntables.
We’ll show what’s going on with Turntable Audiophilia right here.
We’ll begin with these beauties.
