Luxman missed the mark

I have not heard it nor seen it in the flesh.  But so far all of Luxman's gear has been absolutely beautiful to look at and listen to.  Not doubting this table sounds great and is beautifully constructed in the Luxman tradition but a turntable should be a thing of beauty and this 70's retro kitsch look just doesn't do it for me.  Pity.

It IS beautiful

As '70s turntables are.

To me, that is.

Candy Cigs

Art, got some news for ya - candy cigarettes (and bubble gum cigars) are still on the market. Haven't seen the bubblegum cigs in a while - you remember, the ones where you could blow powdered-sugar smoke out of them? Maybe we shouldn't count idler wheel designs out just yet? ; )
