Very sorry to hear of his passing. I have heard the Nouvelle Platine is a very special table. My condolences to his family. Indeed, time to spin a few LP's.

Saddened by the news Pani. God bless his soul.
I exchanged many emails with him the last few years as he taught me how to properly setup and use the Platine. It was very evident to me that he was still brimming with passion for music, and how to get the most out of the record. He will be missed. RIP
Oh no. Another very sad news in a last few days.

Francesco di Giacomo, the vocalist of Banco del Mutuo
Soccorso passed away in February this years. He also was a
legend & genius, namely in contemporary (rock) music. As a
front man in a rock band he was unique and no finer voice in
Italian rock has never existed. An era has ended.
My humblest thanks for these extraordinary gentlemen and
music lovers, they were like magicians.
I have BancoÂ´s latest recordings from 2013, the 3LP set just
released. I will spin all my BMS albums.
Requiescant in Pace
