TAVES 2013 show report

“Garth Leerer from Musical Surroundings was up from Oakland, CA and had a very musical setup. He was using Mike Yee’s classic Nova II Phono Stage with an AMG Viella 12 turntable.

The vinyl rig was first class… The sound (and performance) was so good.

Audiophilia, October 2013


“An AMG Viella 12 turntable and tonearm fitted with a Benz-Micro SLR cartridge provided signal to a Musical Surroundings Nova II phono stage… The sound was well balanced and seamless with excellent dynamics and bloom.
