My newly acquired Lenco B-55 in pristine, unmodded conditions... will use it on-stage for my "TGE's Audio Concerts" - the music from the '60s and '70s which changed the world.
Look at the awesome, gorgeous veneering and such a beauty and pouring class... and back in early '70s I was buying my first turntable... a Thorens TD 160... silly I was!

The Rock of improvised music, from Berlin... from 1966 onward, they gave us, music daredevils, shivers of joy and debrises of craziness to broaden our minds, rescueing us from Flat Earth Syndrome...
... with a fond remembrance for the always deeply missed Hans Reichel (first left on above picture)... t
Please have a browse on live words above for many cool music samplers from the HUGE catalog.

Looking for an alternative on those crappy, fake, badly performing chinese copies of Orsonic's?
THIS IS YOUR CHOICE - an anti-resonance headshell of seldom seen shape and high quality, hand-made in Japan... yes, NOT cheap, but, what the hell, life isn't cheap per-se and too short to listen to crappy gears;-)
In the same vignoble of Bosoeum Acoustics "Big Nose" headshell, where the arm length is virtually longer and the added mass tame cartridges vibes, with a superb, elegant & cool plus, as the arm-lift is front, not side-mounted... and part of the headshell itself.
A truly brilliant mind designed it... simply superb!

Early Electronic and Tape Music gathers six such Cage pieces in the loving hands of the Langham Research Centre, a UK-based new music troupe specializing in authentic re-creations of classic electronic compositions. Remaining steadfast to the tradition established by Cage collaborators such as David Tudor and Bebe and Louis Barron, LRC utilize open-reel tape machines, portable radios, turntables, and magnetic pickups, using them to coax all manner of noises, from high-frequency squeals and low-end rumbles to fleeting snippets of big band music and disembodied voices. While less adventurous ears and the otherwise Cage averse will likely want to pass over this collection, others with a fancy for electro-acoustic improvisation a la AMM or MEV, or a foothold in the noisier strains of free improvisation (Borbetomagus, Voice Crack), will have plenty of sonic grist to mill here.

Can art be compassion? Is the artist a mirror? Is life a performance? Why nudity is so offending for someone? Why looking in each others eyes can be painful? ... or wonderful?
What's a poem? Image or word?
Sound or music?
... a tear...

Impressive is the comment which comes to mind... but also elegant and soooo understated in hiding all its technical secrets.
At Lumen White they know how and what to do to capture audiophile attention.
