November 2008 Hi-Fi Show

 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.
My wing man setup2 and BenC, a local DIY enthusiast added a twist on open baffle material...
...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, 
JELdx preamp and SE300Bdx (driving 755C/OB)

Grease bearing Garrard 301 in laminated birch-ply plinth, Ortofon 309/SPU GME for stereo LPs...
...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.
