Hear my Cartridges....ūüé∂
@halcro¬†Victor - it appears smoother here than my sample. On my system the Victor seems technicolored, as in false sharpness - oversatuated you might say if you were a photographer. On your demo it is easier to listen to. What I mean by coloured i... 
Hear my Cartridges....ūüé∂
Observations -Victor XI - enoyable to listen to but horribly coloured. Enjoyment wears off rapidly due to the colourations.Sony XL88D - wondered why it sounded so grainy, then I went to the start and confirmed Victor/SAEC combo. Sorry Halcro - thi... 
SUT to MM cable? what should i get? cable mis-match
@lohanimal Given that nandric appears to have not experienced an Entre ET100, then his opinion is speculation at best.The Fidelity Research step up transformers I have experienced, including the top non switched ones with their matched FR cartridg... 
Cartridges: Kuzma CAR or Lyra on a 4-Point (11") arm
@hamburger¬†I can confirm I will be installing the CAR50 on the latest Kuzma 4Point early next week - will be able to let you know how that compares to the CAR40 & VDH Colibri.¬† 
Cartridges: Kuzma CAR or Lyra on a 4-Point (11") arm
@rossb Thats great info - comparing the Phasemation/Colibri/Dynavector XV, which is the most revolving ? I‚Äôve listened to the Colibri a lot, with multiple arms, but not the others. 
Catridge for sme 30/2
Cartridge set up on the SME 30/2 is very easy if you follow the instructions in the manual and use the supplied protractor. Probably one of the easiest systems around. You simply bolt the cartridge into the holes, level the cartridge and then adju... 
Cartridges: Kuzma CAR or Lyra on a 4-Point (11") arm
If you can wait for a week or so I am about to mount a CAR50 on the latest version of the Kuzma 4Point. The arm currently has a van den hul Colibri on it, and I have heard the CAR40 on it previously, which I thought was good value for money. I wil... 
Fidelity Research FR64s Headshell dilemma
You can run either alignment, Stevenson or Baerwald, at either P2S. The only issue is cartridges with an integrated headshell like the FR7 because you cant alter their angle in the shell.Furthermore, because the FR64S does not have offset bearings... 
Fidelity Research FR64s Headshell dilemma
@karl_desch¬†No - the problem is that cartridges do not have a standard distance between stylus tip and mounting holes. Similarly headshells vary in their length and postion on holes/slots. So when you push the P2S out you will get this problem fro... 
Fidelity Research FR64s Headshell dilemma
@nandric¬†I'm sure you can figure it out, but if you cant, the doctor mistakenly thought she said ¬†"I have a cute vagina". 
Fidelity Research FR64s Headshell dilemma
Anytime i have new tonearm and cartridge i follow manufacturer recommendation only, i trust to tonearm/cartridge designer more than to anybody else! The experts once thought the world was flat, too, until someone ventured west, and was stunned to ... 
My AT150MLX Cartridge has been misaligned for 4 years
You have probably damaged your records.¬†If a cartridge mistracks - the groove is permanently damaged.You might want to change your moniker. 
How to adjust height of Eminent Technology ET-2 tonearm
I've set up the ET2 on various Sofa turntables dozens of times when I was the importer here in New Zealand ( for both products ).I've always been able to set up with the ET2 mounted directly on the Sota armboard without any spacer required other t... 
Fidelity Research FR64s Headshell dilemma
In fact for your Denon DL-103 with its conical tip the alignment method is absolutely irrelevant! Why? Because the stylus is CONICAL. Before you will twist your cartridge in the headshell to align it with something else like Baerwald please try to... 
Thoughts on SS bass. Tube mid and high tube pre
The Tannoy Monitor Gold's crossover is in the midrange - 1000hz.The tweeter and base are aligned with the crossover and physical position such that at the cross over point the tweeter and base are perfectly in sync with both phase and time - hence...
