Stereophile Ãßõ ±â±â(1999³â 4¿ù)

Turntables

Class A

Forsell Air Force One Mk.II: $30 000 *
Immedia RPM-2: $4995
Linn Sondek LP12 with Lingo power supply: $3045-3120 $$$ * A steal for such a neutral table!

Tonearms

Class A

Clearaudio/Souther Tri-Quartz Improved: $2500*
Immedia RPM-2: $2495
Graham 2.0: $2250-3000 * Solid and dimensional! Even better than the already excellent 1.5, and IMHO, when matched with the Linn Sondek LP12 (which Stereophile itself has alluded to), you get musical nirvana this side of the $30000 Forsell (and a MUCH less fiddly 'table!)

Sonic Frontiers Transport 3/Processor 3: $6999 each
Sony CDP-XA7ES: $3000
Wadia 860: $7450
Wadia 850: $4950 I've never really been taken by Wadia CDP's, as I've always felt they were ludicrously expensive, though in today's climate of megabuck player/ processors/ transports their prices seem almost sane (case-in-point: the $12000 dCS Elgar). I agree with JA that used via the direct outputs this is a gorgeous sounding player, and very engaging to listem to. I haven't heard the 860, but I'm sure it will be better though perhaps not worth the extra 3 grand -- who knows?

Meridien 518: $1950

Preamplifiers

A

Adcom GFP-750: $1250 $$$ What you've heard is true -- I can't believe that this costs only $1250 except perhaps it's because it's an Adcom and they're not used to charging ridiculous prices for good gear. Do we really need another pre-amp costing over $5000?
