Technics Sp10Mk.3 NGS Direct drive

Mono and Stereo Magazine review Quotes by Richard H. Mak

“There is no music better to demo the NGS than Batman’s own music, or should I say Hans Zimmer and James Newton's original soundtrack “The Dark Knight Rises”, the bass notes on track Underground Army is not just chest pounding, but earth shattering! It reminds me of the sound of the thumper which the Fremens use to summon the Sandworm on the planet of Arrakis (a scene in David Lynch’s 1984 movie DUNE). It is the deepest “thumping” which I have heard from any turntable, including my personal reference TW Raven AC, and the VPI Titan which I recently review. It literally shakes the foundation of my listening room with solid deep bass “thumping”.

“The same explosive dynamics is carried onto The Battle on Ice in Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky with Thomas Schippers directing the NY Philharmonic (Columbia Masterworks MS-6306), on a lesser table, the recording can easily be turned into a garbled up mess, combined with ear-piercing edginess on the highs. The sound remained composed, with clear instrument separation and solid holographic projections. The weightiness of the instruments makes the presentation more forward, immediate, yet the acoustic space remains layered and three dimensional. It throws musical elements in all directions, creating an ever-expanding soundstage with vivid colors, and high contrast.“ Read full review here (Link)
