It was a hectic show for me. I had agreed to do two events each Friday and Saturday in conjunction with Colleen Murphy's Classic Album Sundays in a room featuring a Spiral Groove SG 1.1 turntable and Centroid arm, VTL Reference electronics including a pair of big Siegfried mono blocks and a pair of Wilson Audio Specialties MAXX 3 loudspeakers.

New York City based Atocha Design displayed a gorgeous looking, superbly crafted retro-cabinet designed to hold components and store records or other lesser media. All of the company's cabinetry is hand-crafted in the U.S.A. by a master cabinetmaker.

The latest turntable from Simon Yorke, the S-10 is a battery powered design that appears to be a seriously refined and updated edition of the S-7 that was my reference for nearly a decade.
