I saw the Haydn episode and plan to see more. I enjoyed it a lot. The Hungarian violinist was a kick! Great musician and lively character.

Yes, I've watched all of Scott Yoo's episodes and loved them. Putting the creation of the music into its historical and physical context is fascinating. Getting to meet, virtually, some very interesting musicians and hear their passion for the music puts it in a personal context you don't get from listening to a recording. Highly recommended.
Thank you for sharing that episode. I watched the whole thing and loved it. I really liked the way they incorporated jazz and jazz improvisation to both contrast and bridge the gap between classical music formalism and other musical performance approaches.
As for the gear, the turntable is a Basis table, not Clearaudio. I have a similar table, including the vacuum pump that clamps the record to the platter.
