British turntables do seem very popular in the USA in spite of the current prohibitive exchange rate but over here there has been a reaction in the press of late to their fomer jingoism and now they do admit that other turntables besides the Linn Sondek might actually be worthwhile...
OK,now were" turning the table" to another subject.The Czech BUD came out about 20 years after Mr.Busch,if I am not wrong , who came from Bavaria ,started his brewery in Missouri.You are right,it is said that the Czech BUDWEISER is the "Beer of KINGS" as far as taste goes.I found out Anheiser Bucsh does not even use the original recipe of the old" American Budweiser"They use alot of rice,and Germans don't use rice to make beer.That started after prohibition I heard.The Czech BUD beers real name is called Budwieser Budvar, if my memorys right. That Guinness will make you fat as a hog if you have a slow metaboisam,but it is a good one and very heavy.Now back to turntables,I posted a question on the "Bayonet tone arm thread".Can you take a look? Thanks LL
