Beauty of Sound
Then again, given how many rooms I had left to cover before show's end, heading straight to heaven certainly seemed like a viable alternative to an exponentially accelerating case of AXPONA angst.
The room was a bi-coastal affair. KT Audio Imports, located in Torrance, CA, supplied the eye-catching Triangle Art Signature turntable ($12,500) which was playing, as well as the more expensive Reference turntable ($16,500). They also provided the Triangle ART TA-1 record clamp ($800)
Beauty of Sound, located in East Greenbush, NY, provided, from Ikeda, the IT-407CRI 12" tonearm ($6500) and Kai moving-coil cartridge ($10,000) that I heard, as well as the TubeGuru ECC808 MM/MC phono preamp ($4400), Kaplan Cable GS Mk.II 1.5m interconnect ($1395) and 6' power cord ($1695), Slagle step-up transformer w. silver wiring ($2500), and Pi uberBUSS w/Furutech Cu receptacles ($1400). The music supplied the rest.
