Dynavector XV1 S and the older XV1 which one ?

What is the difference between the two ?

Which one is better for a big tube all out system.
You know there is also a XV-1t being released at CES.

I have owned both and I prefer the slightly more musical sound of the original XV-1. The XV-1s has slight better detail retrevial and a tighter bass. I preferred the ever so fatter bass of the XV-1.

I wonder where the XV-1t is going to take us - besides more money
Dear 1twekr: Both are very good performers and differences are system dependent but as a whole I agree with Downunder.

IMHO for yur system the XV-1s could be better match.

Regards and enjoy the music.
Has anyone else compared these two great needles ?
