Nothing like a bit of nostalgia, is there?

I can remember Workers' Playtime on the Home Service, too - though possibly in the 60s (?). 

That turntable looks interesting, too. (I had a problem with the link, but here's the PDF they have . . .)

The Prelude turntable as pictured in the pdf is fitted with what looks like a Hana SL and Origin Live Silver tone arm which, coincidentally, is the same combination I use. 

I wonder if they do a loan scheme on the turntable... Disapprove

What turntable do you use, Malcolm? 

I wonder what price the Planalogue will come in at? I guess they think there's a market for a newcomer. I hope it sounds as good as it looks Wink.

My turntable might also qualify for the nostalgia label as it started life as a Rega Planar 2 in 1987, the only original parts remaining are the lid and motor. It's for the reason of the latter I was interested in Graham's recent rim drive experimentation.

The Prelude certainly was finished to an impressive standard with a high gloss black finish which would match my PMC speakers nicely! Peter Laitt of Planalogue did ask me what price did I think; actual retail less arm and cartridge was quoted as £2395 which appeared competitive.

And it sounded good too as he played a track familiar to me on a record I'd just bought there.

A favourite jazz cd of mine is At First Light by Norwegian vocalist Silje Nergaard which was released 15 years ago. Found a vinyl version of this at the show, lacquer cut in Germany and pressed by Pallas but curiously released in Korea in 2014 on the Universal label. It was track 2 that was played on The Prelude with Hana SL, not sure on the electronics and speakers.

Sounds good in my front room too (I have a Reflex C).

Probably even better with an Accession MC! Tongue

A bit like Trigger's broom, then . . . Wink

Will have to keep an eye out for reviews of the Prelude. Hopefully it will do well out in the big wide world.
