    SME 3012 Series 1

    Hi Ovenmitt, Tang did an even more specialized solution which is a little more expensive but looks really good. You may ask him. You ´re right. Restored but not rewired. I am using the original old copper litz. The extension with the pins is new. Best E. www.AudioCirc.com

    SAT XD-1 Turntable Debut at The Audio Salon

    Tang, You know about completing TT-Systems as David does too! It is true that most innovative TT-designs need maturation, especially in details. As it counts for the AF-Zero (I was positively impressed in Munich at the current stage of development), the Apolyt (which underwent changes in design...

    Building a dedicated audio room from ground up

    Dr. K. The listening room is the most important issue in Audio High End. If you may build it up from ground you do rely on a good concept. Then you may decide about hiring an acoustic engineer. All the best https://audiocirc.com/2017/08/28/backstage/...

    Spiritofmusic, I have a hell of bass on my Kuzma Airline/Palladian/Micro 8000 combo. Must be a tangential issue! www.audiocirc.com

    Cannot support you on the AF3 as I did not have it in my room, but using the Kuzma AirLine with an appropriate cart on my Micro Seiki 8000 double platter design sounds magical. Many vinyl lovers do resist compressors not knowing how much potential they are giving away.

    Ron, where did I not show my respect for Nishikawa san that you are asking me for that? All my conceptual ideas ground on the bases that air bearing became my hobby. May I ask you which of my "so called theories" are already implemented in the Zero or not? Please give me a clear and simple...

    I am not sure if this is a thread about tonearms as analogplanet is expressing. Analogplanet, are you on the wrong thread? SAT and SAT-tonearms might be a different thread. Anyway, what is interesting is that TechDas has successfully established very good copies (great technology!) of the old...

    Apolyt is a finished product. They deliver it in a big and smaller version (a little lowered). You may also have it in full black design, meaning the columns are black too. www.audiocirc.com
