  Celebrating 29 Years Of Service To Music Lovers



Hi-Fi '99


Nagra SNST-R  The Nagra SNST-R open reel miniature analog recorder is made like some of the finest timepieces. It started out as a product for the Kennedy administration and was developed into a family of products over the past thirty years to include models from dialogue recorders to those used for movie making.  Security applications too of course.  Most of those super spy models are not for sale to civilians, yet this model is optimized for music recording and is built to the same high-precision as spy units.  It is available for sale to interested parties for a low low bargain basement price of $10,000.  Like a fine Swiss watch you get what you pay for!  Frequency response is claimed as 50 to 15,000 Hz and is closely designed to match the best condenser microphones.  Wow and flutter is an astonishingly low .025% by the way.  The Nagra SNST-R runs on two AA batteries for seven hours straight.  The main body is machined out of a solid piece of aluminum and the total package weighs 590 grams (little more than an ounce).  For all you analog junkies, click here for a larger, taster photo of the Nagra SNST-R.

Thorens TD 325
Thorens was at the show in full force!  They were showing their new model TD 325 ($1,180) two-speed (33.3/45rpm) unit that uses a 24 pole synchronous motor, 2.5 kg. zinc alloy dynamically balanced platter which comes with their TP 90 tonearm.  Expect availability to be sometime around the summer of 1999.


Oracle Turntable and CD Player
The great folks at Oracle were showing their wares too!  Seen here in their latest model turntable called the Delphi Mk V.  i would ramble on here about it, but why not take a better look at it on the Turntable Lust page where a larger, tastier photo is.


Nitty Gritty 2.5 Fi
My vote for the best analog accessory is none other than the Nitty Gritty 2.5 Fi record cleaning machine ($529 in black, $599 in Oak).  Cleaning vinyl is a must and i personally have cleaned over 7,000 vinyl records on my very own unit.  With the optional adapter you can clean 45rpm and 78's too!  Here is a "must have" for all you analog addicts out there.  Highly and humble recommended.


Of course for all you vinyl/analogue junkies out there i could not help but take a quick pic of the Walker Audio air bearing Proscenium Gold Signature turntable and tonearm ($17,250).  Also being used was the Walker Audio precision Motor Controller ($1,500).  Seen below the turntable is the Joule Electra LAP-100 line amplifier with all tube photo stage ($5,490) which uses an outboard power supply.  One of the internet underground fave's, JPS Labs, interconnects and cabling was used throughout.  For an even larger, tastier photo of just the turntable, please see the Enjoy the Music.com Turntable Lust Page by clicking here.
