J.A.Michell reference electronic transcription turntable

Do you remember the days of vinyl with all the snap, crackle and pops?  I remember them so well because I still have a large collection of records. Actually when you have a beautiful turntable and a beautiful arm it makes the music come alive. It’s strange to watch this turntable and know this is where the music is coming from. I have a very large collection of japanese pressings from the eighties and many half speed masters which sound absolutely superb, they make the CD sound like a cassette player. I still love the ritual of removing the vinyl from the rice paper sleeve and placing it on the platter. As you can see in the rendering I never finished the SME series III tone arm, maybe one day I will find the time. Until the next post, good listening.
