Eight Ban Record Player

music 1b
Someone brought this by today looking for a replacement cartridge. It’s a miniature turntable from Japan that plays it’s own tiny records. I’m sure it sounds terrible, but it’s a pretty cool toy! I had something similar as a kid called “The Mighty Tiny”. The only thing I could find about them is HERE

David Grissom

stopped by the shop and got his turntable back on track. While he was here we played his new record, Way Down Deep, on the DeVore O/93’s and Line Magnetic 218ia. Let’s just say we were BOTH impressed! Check out David’s site HERE. Austinites can catch him every Tuesday at Saxon Pub. 6pm for Happy Hour! FREE! (tip people!) Stick around for Bruce Hughes too!

Guru Junior

Among the numerous launches at the Bristol Show was the new Guru Junior standmount speaker from the Swedish speaker specialist, Guru.

It sits below the company’s QM10 monitor loudspeaker, and has a smaller cabinet and price tag ($1195) than its bigger brother. Guru claims the Junior can deliver deep bass and maintain a ‘neutral sound’ from 34Hz up to 30kHz.

Designed for placement close to the wall behind it, either on speaker stands or mounted on wall brackets, the Guru Junior will be available in piano black, white or walnut veneer finishes.

Sensitivity is 87db/w/m, impedance is 6 ohms and the MDF/aluminium cabinet houses a 20.5mm soft-dome tweeter and 10.2cm coated paper mid/bass driver.

A sensible speaker for Naim’s UnitiQute or Rega’s Brio-R!
