You have a very pleasant 'problem' :-).
I am using the new Durand Talea which works quite well with my Dynavector XV1-S. Here is the website link: http://durand-tonearms.com/. I have heard the tonearm paired with the Ortofon A-90 in two systems, both with excellent results. I have also briefly mounted my Miyajima Mono cartridge and it also sounded terrific. Feel free to email if you have questions.
What's a scuffed up country kid doin' with a shiny toy like that? And you even matched colors! Who'da thunk? Don't let Ann know about this, she may start thinking of you as a shopping consultant.
I'm just sure a Talea belongs in a sophisticated setting, you know, with owners who come by their exquisite tastes naturally.
Crazy busy @ work but a trip may be in order...
You can bet a key lime pie that Anne had something to do with the choice between the polished chrome and the nickel. ;-) I mean, I liked it right off the bat, but she surprised me and chimed right in on the look of the nickel. Usually she's like, "whatever".
Hey Richard, don't you have too much to do on that new room? :-)
Yeah, this is turning out to be a very busy summer.
i have a friend that owns the 12" da vinci, triplanar arm, B44 Phantom Mk2, TW Arm, Frank Schroeder 12" arm in a Raven AC.
He said the best arm in general is the Schroder 12" but that took half day of playing around with the different setting. Its the most finicky arm he has ever used.
The 2nd best is the TW arm.
One dealer i spoke even mentioned that he stopped bringing in the Triplanar arm after he used the TW arm. Its really that good.
Only bad news about the TW arm is the long cue.
A friend has been waiting 3 months time & counting.
