Random turntables at AXPONA
AXPONA, like most audio shows over the last two or three years, featured a lot of turntables. I didn't see more than a handful of CD players in the entire show--either you were playing music off of a turntable or you were playing it off of a laptop. These are just a few random shots from Ross Bennett. Above is the stunning yet affordable TD-309 with its "Tri-Balance suspension." This may have been the best-looking TT at the entire show.
Below that, we have a couple of VPIs: an HRX and a Classic. While I've never been a huge fan of the VPI sound, I'm hearing great things about the Classic and I'd love to give one a spin.
