I thought I would post some pictures of my new Gold Note Mediterraneo turntable. Russ Katz went to herculean efforts to obtain this turntable for me. It is absolutely gorgeous to look at with it's Italian walnut base. Thankfully it sounds fantastic as well. I also bought the Donatello Gold cartridge which has received laudatory reviews.
I run this through my Gold Note PH-10 phono preamp. This preamp has a cool lcd screen which makes changing cartridge parameters on the fly very easy.
