Walker Audio Proscenium Black Diamond V


As a long time owner of the Walker Audio Proscenium turntable, I'm delighted to see Lloyd pulling together all of his updates over the years, PLUS SOME NEW INNOVATIONS, into this newest evolution of his turntable.

Lloyd is one of those remarkable audio geniuses to whom we all as music lovers and audiophiles owe a deep debt of gratitude. Whether you own a Walker Audio product or not or ever will, the fact that he and other amazing people like him are constantly innovating innovating keeps our world moving dynamically forward.

Thank you, Lloyd, for all you've done for the industry!

I couldn't agree with you more.
plus, if you give him a call he will talk to you!

even though I was just asking about HDLs he gave me a few minutes

OK in my book
Lloyd is one of the good guys. However, now whenever he comes over, my wife pats him down in the driveway, makes him turn his pockets inside out and promise not to sell me anything.

But seriously; Lloyd is always pushing the envelope for what is possible in LP playback. He could rest on his laurels and successes, but that would not be who he is.
I might add that along with his amazing turntable Lloyd makes some equally great products like his Prelude Record Cleaning System, the Talisman De-magnetizing device, Reference Links, the Eliminator, a simple but effective RFI reduction product, and his terrific Valid Points and Tuning Discs.

Well said!
 
Ditto on Lloyd. He keeps it real.
I'm not sure I would say that a $105,000 turntable, and a gorgeous one it is, is Keeping it Real. Any more than a $15,000 Koetsu Platinum Coralstone Mono Cartridge, as beautiful and sumptuous sounding as it undoubtedly is, is Keeping it Real.
Geoff, Touche'. I wrote what I wrote BEFORE I saw the new price of the latest Proscenium. Suddenly, it has become less real. I used to think of it as a bargain among megabuck turntables, when it was in the $40K to $60K range.

But charging 60.00 for a telephone call as a system enhancement IS keeping it real.....

Look on the bright side, it cuts down on house calls.

Dear Rushton: I heard four times three different audio systems where the analog rig was " commanded " by the Walker TT.

One of those times was at Slipknotl place ( great fun there with a great family people there. Thank's. ) where I met Lloyd.

I have no single doubt on the TT high quality perfromance level but I'm questioning my self if those big 105K dollars are justified in front that high quality performance level against TTs costing 10-15 times lower other that the owner proud?, as Geoffkait posted: " it's that real? ".

Things in audio seems to me that everyday are targeted as priceless importance it does not matters the " real " value.

Of course that Walker as any other audio manufacturer/distributor is free to put the price they think is the best for its customers.

Of course that this price value diminish in no single way all the L.Walker works over the years to improve an to mantain a growing up " religious " high end hobby. Good for this!

Regards and enjoy the music,

I remember seeing Lloyds table in 1999 at the Chicago Stereophile show. Cost was $14,995.

how times have changed, and no doubt the table to some degree, but 90k's worth?
Hi,

I just got my Walker Audio Black Diamond 3 updated Sat. to the Mark V and it was great to see Lloyd and Fred again.
The Update is a serious one,through the update from the 2 to 3 this one made a much more profound difference.He does something to the Air supply,Headshell,Under the Platter,changes the feet on the motor stand,record clamp and even did something to my motor controller.
When they left and I sat down to listen it was jaw dropping the detail and speed and bass and air around the instuments and soundstageing I was getting out of the system.
Bottom line,if you own a Walker Black Diamond do yourself a favor and get the update a sit back and enjoy,it really is a no brainer.

Regards Robert
I am curious to know the cost of the upgrade. However, it is none of my business, if you do not care to disclose the amount.
Hi Lewn,I really cannot discuss cost.It depends on what vintage your table is and a lot of other things,sorry.I will tell it is pretty reasonable for what you get.
