Really good. They used an Ortofon 2M Black cartridge. It's limitations was the the electronics used for the demonstration. A Technics integrated amp with phono stage and Technics speakers. Since it was sponsored by Technics we did not get to hear it in a true high end set up. The equipment was no slouch but not what any of us here would use by a long shot. It is beautifully built with a very heavy platter and is simple to set up with loads of features and adjustments. Everyone brought their favorite lps so I ended being the first one there and the last one to leave. So much good music.
I'm the old grey haired grey bearded guy in the photos...LOL
looks good! true, not nearly a high end system there, but i hope it sounded ok. from the way you are descibing it here, it did.
yeah, i have a Technics 1210m5g...it only cost me 500 bucks. is spending the extra $3500 worth it? i really don't know, but i'm willing to bet probably not, even with all of the new features and upscaled build quality. i think what needs to be done is to compare this new one side by side with a late model 1200 from before panasonic stopped making them. then, people can tell if the extra $3500 is worth it...i think it's a great idea, and if panasonic is up for it, then i'll have reason to believe they have nothing to hide.
in any event, i'll probably be buying the bryston turntable whenever i'm ready to upgrade...
