    or are they just design exercises to show what they could do if they set their minds to it?

    I haven't but always loved the looks of them.
    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon

    Not heard either but as a self confessed Thorens fan I have read quite a lot. The Reference was a no expense spared attempt to produce the best possible turntable. They are quite sought after as there are not that many of them.
