A really nice classic combination shows this Micro Seiki RX 1500G with golden feet. Fidelity Research FR 64 S tonearm from the 80s.

A nice couple. AS Phonolab 1.0 connected with an Accuphase AC Cartridge. A well balanced Set up that never goes out of fashion.

Further pictures of your favourite combinations are welcome!

Oracle Premiere, Sumiko “The Arm” and original koetsu onyx.
Dais (original 3 point suspended deck from Tom Evans) with Linn Itok and Supex 1000.
The former my late fathers and the latter my own at the time.

Sounds good. Can you post a pic of your current combination? It would be nice to get a gallery with matching couples.

Those are over 30 years ago, sorry.
Currently I use an avid acutus reference, triplanar 7se and koetsu wajima.

Club Member Hartwig sent me this cinemascope pic of his new TT-Phonostage combination. Two times Sony PS-X9 and his new Audiospecials Phonolab 1.0. Not bad I think. His Aesthetix was replaced by the AS.

One member of the community reached the Top with two improvements. The fantastic Dereneville Tangential Tonearm and the AS Phonolab phonostage.

Great table a friend locally has one, he calls me when it needs a tweak. When adjusted it is awesome. Io must be a great combo with it.

That´s funny.
One guy in our community has an IO Eclipse, too. He uses the AS Phono espacially for playback his Classic records. I´ve asked him why both?
I love the AS´ for its outstanding low noise in the quiet passages and high dynamic when requiered.
The IO has, I tell no secret, hiss at high volume.;) So both together is my personal perfect match.
