That is one amazing collection! Those old turntables had some serious style, and that Thorens reference looks godly..

Yeah, that vinyl (or is it lacquer?) is so clean and dark, it wants to suck me into a black hole of perfection...

Like it was just pressed yesterday.

I wonder how many offers he has had for it all and what the highest one was?

Sure he will probably never part with any of it but you know someone has tried to convince him.

That’s a very impression collect of historical audio gear. He’s got himself a personal museum. The woodwork is so fantastic and beautiful. Awesome stuff!

Why does that Thorens turntable have 3 tonearms?

At Sound & Vision magazine we had a micro-seiki turntable with 3 SME tonearms which were used to a-b-c test 3 different cartridges all riding in the same record groove at one time. 20 years ago while on business in Japan, I got to see an impressive personal collection of vintage phonographs which were owned by the founder/owner of Audio Technica. He had several hundred on display in their own builiding located on AudioTechnica's factory property.
