More Analog Goodness

Finishing up the final setup on the Spiral Groove SG-2 and TriPlanar arm.

This turntable is a work of art! Initial listening impressions are fantastic. Stay tuned for more on this analog masterpiece.

Martin Logan’s New Flagship

Took a ride up to Seattle to meet with Randy Wells and zoom over to Magnolia HiFi, where they were showing off the new CLX from Martin Logan.

This is one hell of a speaker! CLS devotees (used to be one, myself) will be thrilled with this speaker. M-L has taken everything they’ve learned in the last 25 years and created an electrostatic tour de force.

Our pal Ron Cornelius from McIntosh was their with their new coolio 300 watt tube monoblocks and a big stack of other goodies from Mac. David Allen from ML was on hand for two days to demo the speakers and answer hungry fans questions. Magnolia even had special 36 month financing on hand!

If you love ‘stats, this could be the last speaker you’ll ever need.

Hey, it took em 25 years to come up with this one.

I Drove the Green One

Spending the day with the new Bentley Continental Spur Speed was an awesome experience, and you can read all about it in our August issue.

But, I’ll tell you this much: The Naim Audio system is the best I’ve ever heard in a factory install. I’ve heard a few car stereos that revealed a bit more music, but they were 30-50 thousand dollar installs.

The only catch with Naim is that to get such a great deal on this system, you have to buy a new Bentley. Which isn’t such a bad thing.

With a 600 hp 12 cylinder, twin turbo W-12 motor, this car can coddle you in British luxury and go into warp drive the second you put the pedal to the floor.

The old 3-series just won’t be the same.
