did hear it at CES 2015 paired with Larsen Speakers - the resulting sound was very engaging, musical and easy to sink into. Cool looking to boot!

I have noticed in the last several reviews that Mr. Dudley has done his reviews without his TD124 and only the Garrard 301. I wonder why?

Hi Volvic—I have tended to lean on one when the other requires work, and for the past several months I've been challenged in my efforts to get the TD 124's plinth just so. I'm getting closer—a good saw comes in handy—and in any event you'll see much more of the 124 beginning in the September and October issues and beyond. Thank you for reading my columns and reviews.
