Dear @bonzo75 : " enjoy realism as well as transparency to recordings, .."
even that your targets are different of mines. To stay with " transparency to recordings " we need " zero tolerance " that’s one of my personal targets .
" you are ignoring the fact that Leif, who started the DaVa thread on WBF, has a 7 watts sets driven full range horn system with very high resolution..."
That’s not the main issue with that cartridge and can see that you don’t get it in precise way.
What you like or Leif or me or any one else is not under questioning in any way and it’s the subject of this kind of dialogue:
" zero tolerance " means that I just do not care of any cartridge with a FR deviation between 4db-6db and a cartridges where the manufacturer just does not disclose at least the FR and compliance parameters.
" The DaVa apart from a great sound..."
nothing wrong with that because is what many of you like it. All of you like heavy colorations that does not comes in the recording. Btw, that gentleman in Norway with his horn/set system high resolution likes those colorations because in some ways he is accustomed with " colorations " his target is not " zero tolerance " due that the crossover speakers use one of the higher colored capacitor as Duelund and some others fancy/bs of caps. For me the name of audio " game " is more about knowledge level of each one of us than money and the first step is to fix our main targets that will defines which kind of " colorations " we like and each one of us tolerance levels about. Common sense is way important down there.
@mijostyn , thank’s because now I know that I was not to wrong when I posted that that cartridge is cantileverless design and I don’t know from where a gentleman here posted that can track at 90u.. I need to see that tracking measurement because there is not even the cartridge compliance.
