Well, this is my last response to the subject. For you personally: go to the beginning of the post and read the first sentence: "Didn’t mean to drop the list for public use, It is my guidance in buying and selling cartridges." And if this is not enough there is another one at the end of the paragraph: "This was mean to be for my personal reference only."
I do not teach anyone unless they ask my opinion on the subject.
AS for your believe in saint audio reviewers -most of them are doing good job making extra cash. Once again-extra cash. The are good writers and get new inventory only based on good reviews. No honey- no money- that's the only rule in review writing. Grow up already!
And to put the last nail in the coffin of your believe- sometimes they not even listen to a new cartridge- the goods go straight to me and I give my opinion after listening test. Not often, but in more then dozen reviews you were reading me.
Please use the list or ignore the list- it is there for everyone's view. I'm in title of my opinion based on fact that I have or had pretty much every single phono cartridge in existence. Good luck to everyone
