totally agree about genre @atmasphere
with low gain cart
classical, live music especially where there is alot of hidden background sound pops out. making this kind of recording way more interesting.
with high gain cart. the macro pop out more. and this more saturated.
this is what I noticed.
I always wondered about this debate which is 'better.'
at one stage.. the MM got better than Mc.
then after slowly reviewing the whole system.. slowly improving different aspects.. oh okay.. the advantages of 'mc' appears. my friend uses 2 Lyra and 1 goldring mm and 1 audio technica mm.. then i myself tried Mc and Mm low gain.. oh okay similar results. never at his 80k hi end system system venue with custom room.. archieve 3 layers of clarity width and depth. saturation space. like a very good digital setup .. he say man.. been doing it wrong for 40+ yrs.. old dog got schooled.
But still not final conclusion. there is still something better about high gain mm, it's simply more natural . we know better now not to argue which is better.
