Wilson Audio Specialties "Gets Small" With TuneTot
"TuneTot", is a new Wilson Audio Specialties product that will launch May 10th during High End Munich. That and the above image are all that can be said at this time about "TuneTot" other than it is not for babies, is not related to TaterTots, is not a pair of headphones, is not made in China, does not slice, dice, chop, grind or peel and will not give your children great haircuts or put a fishing rod in your pocket.

A "Clamp On" Solution For the Denon 103's Too Flimsy Mounting Arrangement
The longevity of Denon's 103 cartridge series, first introduced in the 1960's and still in production speaks to the design's enduring popularity. The design's weak point is its flimsy mounting system. As my colleague Art Dudley put it in the December 2007 issue of Stereophile: "The most common complaint about the DL-103 is also the truest: Its good motor is compromised by a too-flimsy mounting arrangement, with open-edge bolt channels that prevent the cartridge from being rigidly fastened to a head shell."
