Alan, I've been reading Dudley's writing since 2001, and know he owns, refurbs, and/or writes about Shindo and Garrard components. I don't recall his writing about this particular system in San Antonio, however. I'm pretty sure everything he publishes in Stereophile also makes it to their website.
I could have missed it. Do you have the link to that particular story?
And I think I may have already met Mr. Alan F., now that I think about it. I think I'll chase that down.
