Nordic Concept


You thought you were an audiophile? Well chew on this: the Nordic Concept turntable has two different cabinets, one for the platter, and one for the motor and phono preamp. The idea is that the very thin belt minimizes any transfer of vibrations from the motor, and the huge platter further minimizes vibration and assures a perfectly flat surface for your records. They've got ceramic bearings, vibration damped cabinets, and an extra heavy puck for level adjustment - and did we mention the unconventional Nordic design? Of course this all comes at a price - $9,800 for the turntable without preamp, $15,500 with. Quality doesn't cheap, you know.


Super System


This weekend we install side by side two of the world's great audio system. The first was a Kondo based system using an ONGAKU 211 power amplifier, a KSL M7 and a KSL DAC. The CD player was the 47Lab PiTracer, a remarkable CD transport. The speakers are from Living Voice, OBX Avatar crowned by a Murata super tweeter. All the interconnect cables are Kondo silver, and the result, as you can imagine, is stunning.

The second system is all 47Lab (except for the Murata super tweeter).

Again, the result is wonderful and from such a small and unobtrusive package.



A view from the top: a Flatfish, GainCard and Gemini DAC with the Lens speakers with Murata tweeters. A small package but a large brilliant sound!
