On YouTube there are 3 guys that have their own channels: phonophan, Phono Phan, and Phonophan58. So I guess it’s not that unique an idea for a nickname. Jim Nichol > On Mar 3, 2016, at 8:39 PM, SN Medved via Phono-L > wrote: > > Imitation is the sincerest form of

The picture that Randy posted looks identical to the Model F pictured in the Frow book. It says the E had a side mount carriage arm with large opening for a Model N reproducer, whereas the F had top mount carriage arm with a small opening for C, H, R, or S reproducers. It says the Model E had
