Funk Firm Vector...in black.
So far all of the pictures of Funk Firm 'tables have been the white ones, which I think is a brand new color for this year. Here's one in the more traditional shade of black, showing that it's a gorgeous 'table in any color. (This pic is once again courtesy of Dan Muzquiz.)
When I first heard this 'table, it was in this color. I heard it at CES in 2008, where it part of a system that also included the Stirling Broadcast LS3/5as. I can't recall the amplification. But this was a fairly large room, and this funky TT with the tiny speakers produced a big, full sound that was totally satisfying. I had the Stirlings in my listening room a couple of years ago, and they are by far the best-sounding LS3/5as I've heard. Sure, they are smaller than shoeboxes and cost a couple of grand (even more when you add the Cicable external crossovers), but I could make a strong case for owning a pair.
