IMO this was the sleeper of the show, well priced, gorgeous to behold and put out the best bass at the show

Thanks for the pics Steve! Sure more are coming :)

BTW, wish you had a close up of the new Graham Supreme arm :( Wonder what Bob's up to with the new arm?

Thanks for the pics Steve. The Hugh Masekela LP in the 1st post brings back memories...saw him live in S.Africa a few years ago. Hugh's a good player with some very interesting sounds. No Miles Davis mind you, but still very worthwhile hearing live if you have the chance.

BTW, am I the only one that really dislikes the looks of the MBL gear....their stuff kind of reminds me of the Cadillac of audio.

Wow, that 25' wide placement of the Maxx3s were hard to imagine till I saw them in picture. Amazing.

And the ARC Ref 250 looks real sleek. Love them with the meters back. The local importer already has on pair playing in his house, his personal units, though I haven't seen nor heard them.
