    Interview with Touraj Moghaddam:
      Turntable designs are as different, and varied as suit designs. Both have a basic pattern that they must follow, but once those have been established, the sky's pretty much the limit. I've seen all manner of turntables over the years, from low-mass skeletal designs, and high-mass platter concepts to suspension-enabled stalwarts. But I've rarely seen …

    I have always had a hankering to play with the Vertere arm. Touraj also makes a 12k table/arm that oughta be interesting.

      I had two Xerxes 'tables one with the Artemis arm and years later with the Nima. neither of those set ups are in the same league as Touraj's latest designs but they were also the types of products you could live with happily ever after if one weren't so consumed with the latest and greatest.

      Is Maier Shadi the official importer?

            I hope someone can Check out this gem of a Phonostage. I have the Roksan Caspian DX-2 Ref. It is the one Piece of kit I am not going to be changing any time soon. Based on that this new 999£ Phonostage seems like a No-Brainer. Where are all the People complainig that High-End Audio has become unattainable? Well here is your Chance...

              Does anyone know how much this costs in Canada or the U.S.? I checked the Rutherford site, but they don't have this Phonostage listed.

              I am sure if you send Touraj or your local Distributor a mail, they will be more than happy to help you...

                  I was listening to the Vertere Acoustics RG-1 Turntable through Magico M3 Speakers with a Naim Statement Amplifier and it sounded very nice, have listened quite a few times to Vertere Turntables and they produce a great sound.

                    My magazine did a review of the baby-Vertere about two years ago.
                    I didn´t write the review but I listened to the TT for a few hours.
                    Like all things that comes out of Tourajs head it was music first.
                    Well worth a listen!

                      The Vertere Ref arm was reviewed and compared with SAT by Mono & Stereo some months back. Review is probably still available on their website. Would be great if Myles got to review the Ref arm either with Vertere Ref turntable or on the VPI Vanquish. Fremer reported on it from Munich a couple of years ago and loved the sound....I think he said it was one of his favs from the show that year. Touraj uses FM Acoustic amps.
