TransRotor Fat Bob amazes Part Time Audiophile

TransRotor Fat Bob continues to astound. Now at True Audiophile

TransRotor Fat Bob is a mesmerizing Turntable. Here's the latest review:

"This is an analog front-end that I was loathe to return … after having it in my system for a few weeks. This roughly 85lbs behemoth of stainless steel, aluminum and brass, with its magnetic-bearing technology, had definitely cast a spell on me, and in a way changed how I critically listen to turntables.

I cannot stress enough how rock-solid the foundation is that the Fat Bob provided the SME and Koetsu. Sound-staging was wide, deep and gave instruments and voices ample room to interact, plenty of space around everything, I never felt like an acoustic guitar was in competition with a bass guitar for clarity, rather, instruments and voices were in a constant complimentary cycle. The Koetsu and SME worked seamlessly together to provide a startlingly clear window into every nuance of the performance on any LP I threw at it; and I threw a lot of variation at this combo to see if I could make it take a misstep or trip up, strain or lose its way. Regardless of what I played, the kit threaded its way with accuracy, aplomb and emotional intensity." -- Rafe Arnott, Part Time Audiophile
