I too was curious about Dueland 16ga. Bought a pair and am blown away at how analog they sound. Serious bang for back.

Bardo and 10.5 vs Stabi S and 4point 9
I have Kuzma Ref2 with 4 Point 9 (Cardas Clear wire). Using a Phasemation PP-1000 couldn’t be happier.  
Shindo Monbrison balance issue?

A bit confused?????70 people on the planet have enough money to buy a $30,000 tonearm. Irrespective of sound quality, measurements, science, test results,etc.....why is it so important to you that you make them aware that they are not true audioph...
