One of the world’s most respected reviewers, Robert E Greene,  has given The Rock 7 the most compelling review in The Absolute Sound magazine.

“The Rock VII is one amazing turntable design.”

“Perhaps there are people who admire vinyl not for its real virtues but for its potential failings—resonances, ringing, and the like—who might prefer the sound sans trough more. But anyone who knows the sound of mike feeds or mastertapes—or music—will want the trough back in use instantly.”

“…….the Townshend Rock VII shows what remarkable results can be obtained, not by flinging mass and money at the problem, but by inspired engineering. And some of the sonic virtues of the Rock VII are otherwise unavailable elsewhere at any price. The trough rules!”
