hello, can anyone tell me how this turntable sounds compared **side by side**, to any of the other high end turntables such as the aas gabriel/davinci, walker, kuzma or even the tw raven ac3?
regardless of the technology used in current turntable design, either with magnetic replusion of the platter, air bearings, vacuum hold down or any other combo, the bottom line is in what you hear between your ears.
ideally, the comparison should be made with the same arm and cartridge.
i know the tw raven ac3 is $18K and a considerable amount in anyone's terms - but just what extra sonic performance do you get by spending $50K ???
