Hey, you can always come visit me out here in the center of the universe in S.E. Iowa to hear my Maplenoll. 
Albert has decided to move on from the Walker for yet to be clarified reasons. Perhaps he is enamored enough with the results he is getting from his modified Technics SP10 mk II and SME 312S that he feels compelled to downsize. Personally, I prefe... 
2008 RMAF – – – all things analog.
I'll be there, my first RMAF. Looking forward to meeting up and to it being a step from the usual CES insanity.
