Upon instructions from our boss, my first audio gig in Manila
was to exhibit projects seen but never heard by the local audience. In particular - mono playback and Lenco idler drive turntables.
...Philippine Tanguile wood planks, readily available for wood flooring, affordable, more rigid than plywood and even better acoustical properties.
Lenco L75 + Ortofon AS212, Garrard 301 and Thorens TD124II + FR64fx,
...flanked at the back by the Philippine debut of a viscous damped Velvet Touch tonearm with cartridge slides loaded with a GE RPX and Denon DL102 for mono LPs.
Philippine premiere of Bogen/Lenco L70 doing alternate duty as mono front end
Stereo speakers: setup2's Altec 755C/OB augmented by EV T35 tweeters
Mono speaker at center (not a subwoofer;) - Altec 605B/OB
