Vinyl Dominates 2012 Newport Audio Show
Vinyl was all over the rooms too as turntables went from being the source used by a cranks a decade ago to going positively mainstream at T.H.E. Show. Mathew Weisfeld proudly showed a more finished iteration of the new $1300 Traveler turntable first shown at the recent New York audio show. The 'table comes complete with a new 10" sapphire bearing gimbaled arm and an aluminum platter.
Mathew brought the 'table with him in a piece of luggage, thanks to its easily removable tonearm. I heard it in the Soundsmith room and the sound was formidable. The Traveler begins shipping right after the show. We'll have one soon for review.
Mikey doesn't shy away from posting unflattering photos.
