It's the end of the week so what better time to ogle audio eye candy? The Mambo turntable from Acoustic Signature does German design justice with massive slabs of solid aluminum and razor thin precision. 20 holes are drilled in the aluminum slab and filled with rubber and brass "silencers" to help reduce vibration. Sound? It's said to sound about how it looks -- big bass, power, dynamics, etc. The Mambo runs $5000 and is part of Acoustic Signature's lineup of progressively larger, thinker and heavier tables. Below is a pic of the family from HE2006. Shown with the big Eben X-5 speakers was the new AS Grande Reference Turntable, a $20,000 beast the size of a torpedo. Imagine stretching the Mambo's plinth down to the floor and tripling the thickness of the platter. Yeah, huge. Sadly, no picture. Update: Beto has a twitchy camera finger and snapped the Grande Reference at HE2006. Read full article to see the big pic.
