After many years of looking and 50 years in, I found and bought a beautiful Woodsong Garrard 301 TT. It inspired a complete remake of my system. I upgraded my entire system to match the beauty and quality of the Woodsong.
I was so focused on a 301 since my friend, record producer and record company owner the legendary Winston Ma, had so impressed me that he used his 301 as the source for one on his upscale Gold CDs!
And since Covid, my wife and I have not been doing any traveling. In 2019 we went on 3 cruises. So I got the OK to spend the money on my system and spend 3-4 hours daily listening to vinyl. It is at the center of my retirement.
I now feel that I have a destination rig well beyond any I have lived with or experienced.
Very interesting system. Unusual loudspeakers, and amplification. I contacted GAN, I'm hoping to hear back from them soon, although now that I think about it, it is Saturday, so it might be a couple of days.
What a cool and unusual system! Love that 301 a totally gorgeous heirloom piece what a wonderful inspiration to work from. I would imagine it sounds lovely and what a gorgeous serene setting for your system.
