Rolf's comments:
"The TD 125 was finished yesterday. The sound is absolutely perfect, very dynamic,
showing details I've never heard on my test records. I thought it would be very
good, but I was surprised to hear perfection. I tested it with van den Hul Frog  (Gold, built as van den Hul´s own reference Frog ) using customers 3012 R
tonearm. It is one of these turntables, You hate to give away....."
