    Hello,

    being the author of this project, I'd like to drop a few lines.

    There are several ways of authentic music reproduction, and this is just one of them. The idea was to get from an 8" all that it can give, without usage of backloaded horns, and we did it. As a result, we have 38 - 40 Hz low range and extremely well articulated bass with perfect contours. They are, so to say, omnivores that play any kind of music just lifelike.

    You can hardly spot them in the picture - there are two Atleier Rullit Aero 8 AlNiCo which have been designed particularly for this purpose. The only disadvantage in the european market might be the size of these creations.

    These beauties are easy to transport and handle, though, for they are (dis)mountable without any problems.

    Best regards,
    Oleg Rullit

    Funny... I kind of like the visual of the random blue block idler-wheel unit with the Schick arm.
    I think I'd go for a more finished look on the blocks, but the idea that it's not a rectangular
    box with a wheel on top is appealing (to me). I haven't read a shootout description, but I
    imagine it could have surprised a few people.
    It's uh... uh... it's down there somewhere, let me take another look...

    Hi,

    No,
    Have to wait.

    The topic this year was the Western Electric theater sytem (starting from 1928) and a shootout of turntable.
