Deutsch Perfektion

 

  Are you an vinylphile looking for a great book? You know, one that is not just great reading, but also historic and educational at the same time. Well look no further as here we have Deutsch Perfektion: The History Of The Legendary EMT Turntables that covers one of the truly legendry turntable manufactures as written by Stefano Pasini. This book (printed in English, German, and Italian) covers many topics concerning the many EMT (Elekromesstechnik) turntable designs. From the very first EMT R80 (1950, first version of the 927) to the great Direct-drive EMT 938 (1982) and all in-between. So what makes the EMT turntable so endearing? From transcription use to laboratory-grade precision, their turntables still receive high resale value in the used marketplace. In fact there was an EMT turntable in use at the January 2002 Las Vegas show!

 

This book gives a blow by blow description from the history to parts and repair. As designed by Wilhelm Franz, the EMT line of turntables have a long and proud history from appearing within recording and mastering studios to top home audio systems and beyond. Radio broadcasting companies would use the EMT turntables 24 hours a day, seven days a week without interruption! The incredibly durable design coupled with laboratory measurements are a match made in audiophile heaven. This also proves that newer is not always better. Of course the legendary Garrard turntables also fit into this category. Back to the book...

If you desire to know the secrets behind manufacturing a high precision turntable and the evolution EMT undertook, this book is without a doubt a must have. If you own an EMT turntable then buying this book is mandatory. Stefano Pasini should be commended for allowing us to enjoy this material in all its glory. According to Stefano's website "The text is centered on the history of the classic analogue record players: EMT 920-925, R80, R80S, 927, 930, 930st, 940, 950, 948, 938, plus the pre-amplifiers, cartridges, tonearms, notes on the production, location, tips for servicing, spares lists, addresses of the specialists, EMT-related Web sites, etc.". This hard covered book will also make a great gift to your vinyl loving friends. The EMT world thanks you Stefano... as will music lovers worldwide. Of course in the end what really matters is that you...

Enjoy the Music,

Steven R. Rochlin
