Insider with Robert Harley — Upcoming in TAS: Special Analog Focus

We’re just putting together The Absolute Sound Issue 172 (June/July cover date, April 30 mail date) which has a special analog theme. The issue includes reviews of eight turntables ranging from $299 to $26k, six phono preamplifiers from $150 to $7k, and reports on eight phono cartridges from $89 to $3k. On top of that, the TAS editors and senior writers agreed by consensus on the twelve most significant analog products of all time. These are the products that introduced a new design concept and in some way changed the art. We also name the “must-have” analog accessories. Finally, I’ve written a special feature explaining how the LP works and how they are manufactured.
