I know it does if you think about it like that but I don’t see that unless I try to.

Has Keith ever sold any of those in the UK?


#224

No idea, but it would appear that someone has

That is v ugly


#226

I don’t care for the looks either, however that wouldn’t deter me. It may sound amazing, but I’ve not personally listened to one.


#227

Its also a shed load of money to play a record.


#228

It’s horrible looking and probably difficult to sell on, as you don’t seem to get a lot for your money. In that price range people want a ‘name’ and for it to be substantial. Never heard one.


#229

I remember him pushing that ugly Spiral Groove thing as well, that never took off either.


#230

Didn’t see one Monaco at Munich, there were loads of Kronos though. Similar money.


#231

You need to upgrade to a LP12.

I believe there was one of the carbon fibre plant pots at CES


#232

Had one for about ten years, back in the last century. That’s where they belong :smile:


#233

In denial😁


#234

Hi,

Symmetry systems used to import them before Keith took them on.


#235

Would rather have something with some isolation built in :wink:


#236

True.

Do they rely on their megabucks racks to provide this :grin:


#237

Looks nice. Montegiro.


#238

Looks like it’s made, in part of bamboo.


#239

It is.


#240

Looks a lot nicer than the striped biscuit tin and drinks accessories one they do/did?
