spent the weekend (5 hours Friday, 12 on Saturday, and 8 hours today) with Kedar (Bonzo75 on WBF) doing compares between the DaVa on my Tosca tonearm and Saskia tt, and my 2 other tt’s, the CS Port LFT1 and the Etsuro Gold ’special’ cartridge, and the NVS tt, Primary Control FCL tone arm and Etsuro Gold ’special’ cartridge. each of these 3 tt/arm/cart combo's was fed into an EMIA phono corrector with an MC Trio SUT.
we were joined yesterday by ’jeffrey_t’ from WBF, and today by ’Bobvin’ from WBF and ’Solypsa’ from WBF and Audiogon.
so that’s 5 vinyl loving people who witnessed considerable comparative listening with these three combo’s. my Wadax digital and Studer reel to reel were also played.
Kedar has a blog.....
.....you can read if you want to know his perspectives.
Kedar is returning Wednesday for another 4-5 hours of listening before he flies back to the UK.
i’m not even going to get into any listening opinions. you can just watch for feedback to circulate around about the weekend’s experiences. me posting my thoughts here seems not to turn out too well. the disruption impulse factor here is dominant. why would i want to deal with the grief? i only post this so those who are curious can investigate for themselves.
have a nice day.
