Sondek LP12

We can do most work on the world's most famous turntable
to achieve top performance. 

Properly set-up with a modest cartridge and clean vinyl,
this rather simple device will beat most digital sources
(and most other analogue). 

This may upset folk who've never heard one, in all its 40 years. 
How could it possibly be more musical?!  Well, there are many plausible reasons. 
Best just to relax, listen and enjoy!

Quality vinyl is easily available on the web and so the venerable, analogue LP
still remains a popular, HI-RESOLUTION audio format.

The combined effect of these components is to raise the LP12 to a new level with
less colouration, more clarity, more slam.

Notes:

LP12 like all sources really do benefit from optimum support - see Symposium

Naturally, we're familiar with other (extreme) turntables from around the world. 
Besides great performance, however, one should also consider continued service.
