Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2017, Turntable Eye Candy – Part 1

I want to continue my tradition of posting pictures of turntables at audio shows. When I started doing this, there were not nearly so many and vinyl had not started its upswing in popularity.

There were way too many turntables at this year’s RMAF for me to have taken pictures of all of them. The show was so big and so busy that there are a few rooms I never got to. It is so great to see so much enthusiasm for high fidelity audio and for analog in particular. This static display by Clearaudio about sums up the thought of turntable eye candy and the popularity of turntables at this time.

Here are two beautiful turntables, a Reed Muse 3 C (right) and a Transrotor
