Thanks for venting your spleen, dup. I suggest you settle back in your comfortable chair, put on your favorite music, and let it ease the pain in your soul.
Happy New Year.
PS: I listened to the Continuum turntable when I was last visiting Mikey Fremer. It really is extraordinary. Better than the Rockport? Perhaps not, but Mikey thinks so and is getting massively into hock in order to buy the review sample.
