“A good fellow and easy to get along with. Makes good turntables.”—Tim De Paravicini
A special "faceted" edition of the Redpoint Model MG Turntable provided the anolog source for the Wes Bender Studio NYC room at this year's New York Audio & AV Show. Audiophilia's Henry Wilkenson liked what he heard there and saying "Wes Bender Studio NYC once again hit it out of the park sonically." Henry gave a specific shout-out to the "terrific" Redpoint Model MG turntable.
Wilkenson took this photo of that "terrific" Redpoint Turntable:
Jeremy Kipnis at Home Theater Review called the Wes Bender Studio NYC room "one of the best sounding rooms" of the whole show at NYAV2012. The analog playback source for WBSNYC's system was a Redpoint Model MG. Kipnis wrote that "Listening to a Wes Bender Studio NYC system is like putting yourself in the hands of a master." He also noted the exceptional "strong positive reaction to the visual design" of the the Redpoint Turntable and the "controlled, well-balanced, and vivid" sound "even during the most monumentally loud moments from the great vinyl set-up."
In his "Confessions of a Part-Time Audiophile" blog, the Part-Time Audiophile wrote about his highly positive experience listening to music in the Wes Bender Studio NYC Room at this year's New York Audio & AV Show. While there, he was also treated to some record spinning courtesy of full-time audiophile, Michael Fremer.
The Part-Time Audiophile said WBSNYC at NYAV12 was "more than a room... It was a tour-de-force."
"You have to give credit where it’s due...Bass power. Treble clarity. Mid range draw. It was unreal! Well done." With such a glowing review, we can overlook his initial confusion about the Redpoint MG Turntable.
The Part-Time Audiophile also shared a wonderful anecdote of his time in the WBSNYC room. He recounts when Stereophile's Michael Fremer, came by and played some of his records on the Redpoint MG: "Yes, he brings his own vinyl to every room. Yes, there’s some witty repartee before he takes his seat and yes, he produces LPs with a theatrical flourish." But Fremer did not come by WBSNYC to air wit and flourish, as the Part-Time Audiophile observes: "That man knows his vinyl and he’s a hawk for good sound."
Redpoint thanks both the Part-Time Audiophile and the full-time audiophile for coming by and listenting to vinyl on a Redpoint Turntable at NYAV12.
