Earlier Notes:

 

With the introduction of the TW Acustic Raven AC turntable into the system, it is another leap up the sonic ladder .  In his own words - "The Raven AC is fantastic !   The music and sound opened up into another dimension."

 

Well, after our listening session, there is absolutely no doubt on the synergy of the TW Acustic Raven AC turntable in this system, heard right from the first notes.  The system was not even set up properly in the beginning, where one speaker was not completely turned on.  Indeed, the sonic improvement was already clear and unmistakable.
