I hope all the Capetonians make a beeline for the Loft (you can stop at the Adult World another time), sadly I will be picking up an exam to mark and then marking it.  Hope the grand opening goes swimmingly Achim and I hope to make it next year.

I never experienced such TT Performance as I heard today with my new Clearaudio Statement.
This is a mindblowing maschine....

First impressions, Achim... not only the turntable is a statement... the room is a statement.

It's a wonderful space to enjoy music in an appropriate, relaxed setting.  It has no equal. Thirteen Hof has its own magic, but also its own limitations... forget the equipment, just soak up the music and the atmosphere.

I found the big horns (Trios?) less intimidating than at Thirteen and the small system - Bullfrogs? - created massive impact and scale. Oh, and vinyl.

I hope I get to hear the big Brinkmann tomorrow.

Will there be a listening session on Wednesday? It's probably the only one I can make this week.

This is a mindblowing maschine....
Without a doubt one of the finest Analogue systems on the Globe.
Really looking forward to visit after my return from Jhb.

Installed a Goldfinger Statement MC to client in Jhb last week. He upgraded his Titanium V2.
Being second from the Top....the Titanium is already amongst a handful of elite Cartridges.
But it is scary how much better the Goldfinger is....and at €12500 it has to be counted as a Bargain :2thumbs:

Thank you Achim. I really enjoyed last night and you made your "Statement" loud and clear. Maybe not with rock but it was really in class of its own... I'm still sitting with a smile on my face... just thinking of it...

What an absolute treat as always....I must congratulate you on another amazing space Achim.The art, the gear and the music combined with your enthusiasm and passion are inspiring.
Every lover of sound simply has to visit....the experience is wild and the host is a genuinely nice guy with a naughty German smile....I really enjoyed the Martion Bullfrog horns (superb presentation with real snap and presence which go above and beyond their size.)
The Trio sounded more at home in this space to my ears and I do love them.
Thanks again and I for one wish you every success possible.

My wife and I also had occasion to visit the Loft last night (to pick up our brand spanking new Rega P3 :Whoohoo:) Thanks again Achim for the amazing hospitality. The showroom is an amazing space. My wife could look at the art and decore while I gawked and drooled over the equipment. Those trios are something to behold. I'd be hard pressed to say if they are more beautiful to the eyes or the ears! Even over Robert's snores... :ROFLMAO: who is also a great guy by the way and we had a really nice chat. Looking forward to visiting the Hof the next time we can get a babysitter...

I spent an afternoon at the loft recently, with Achim showing off some absolutely spectacular and very special systems, which ended up in me purchasing the Clearaudio Absolute Phono Inside  - Phono pre-amp, genuinely the best I have ever heard including going up against the AR Ref 3 Phono earlier in the day. The gryphon VIP XLR interconnects were also winners and now reside in my system as well.

I look forward to spending another enjoyable afternoon with Achim in the loft in a few months time, again Thanx Achim :).......
