Continuum Digs That Groove
Continuum has continued to refine its flagship Caliburn turntable system ($99,950). Chief among the changes are the Cobra tonearm's new shape, said to result in greater rigidity, and the Castellon stand's magnetic suspension. The Continuum system sure made a 50-year-old Moods of Gene Ammons LP sound fresh and present.
Correction: I misheard importer Chris Sommovigo when I asked him what had changed in the turntable: It's mostly the finish—the changes in tonearm and support were already incorporated in the models that have been available. The price difference reflects increases in manufacturing costs. My error—sorry for any confusion.—Wes
