    I went to read Halfwheel when I had a break from work. To my surprise, I won their most recent contest giveaway. An AVO turntable, Orbit Plus Turntable

    Not bad for a one word post.

    They are made by U-Turn Audio. It's this table with the Avo branding added to it.

    Since winning it I checked out reviews and people really like them. I used to have a really good turntable but I sold it at a garage sale a many years ago. Who knew that vinyl would come back? I still have some vinyl records from my misspent youth. I may have to frequent, Down in the Valley, the local used record shop. They have been around since at least the ‘60s.

    I was wishing I hadn’t sold it and for how cheap I sold it. So I’m pleased I snagged this one. Charlie, from Halfwheel, said he got my info to Davidoff so I’m patiently waiting.

    In the meantime I have to figure out how to integrate it into my surround sound set up. When I got the stand I didn’t plan for a turntable. I may have to figure out a slide out shelf. It has a dust cover so it has to come all the way out to place a record on it.

    I am glad you are planning on putting it to work. It's a great hobby and can be a very slippery slope with an endless amount of overpriced upgrades.
