The 14th Annual Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF), the largest consumer audio and home entertainment show in the US, was held in Denver October 6 – 8. Though I hadn't planned on attending this year, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet with Stuart McNeilis, CEO of SME and Paul Schenkel, designer of the wonderful Davone speakers. I also wanted to have a listen to the new A2 and A4 models from Spendor.

Glad I made the trip, it was a lot of fun. Here’s the low down.

Outstanding turntable!

Be sure to check out Michael Fremer's post comparing the Technics SL1200G to the $120,000+ Caliburn Turntable with SAT Tonearm - See if you can hear the difference!

The 1200G shares all the important design features of their limited edition model and offers the same amazing sound. 

Frankly, you'll be amazed at how good this turntable is! Don't be fooled by the looks into thinking this is a re-baked SL-1200 from years past, nothing could be further from the truth. The new model is simply in a different universe and competitive with any 'table in the price range.

Add a cartridge and we'll include our expert alignment and calibration free!

Disappointed with the poor quality and inaccuracy of the stylus force gauges on the market? We were, and so we’re thrilled to offer the Rega Atlas – at last, a quality stylus force gauge!

We all realize the importance of precisely setting stylus force. We were all thrilled with the advent of digital gauges which promised the ability o measure out to three places. Problem is, most a poorly made and you're lucky if you get one that is accurate and lasts for more than a few months. REGA TO THE RESCUE!
