Hear my Cartridges....🎶
So I've had the most frustrating 'listening' week...and I blame Frogman ☝️I've had the AZDEN YM P50VL for 10 years but when I first tried it then....it didn't 'make the cut' and so ended up collecting dust in a drawer.At Frogman's suggestion....I ...

Thank you Frogman, for taking the time and trouble to write your last Post.It made me realise that there is perhaps nothing wrong with my hearing...it's just that we all have different priorities and preferences.It dawned on me that, whereas a mus...

I know what you mean.....Whenever I hear the Mr Whippy van come down the street playing Greensleeves, I know it’s ‘live’......

Wow Frogman........🤯I wasn't expecting THAT...!!Firstly....I agree completely how far we are from truly creating the illusion of a 'live orchestra'....even for million dollar systems (and I've heard several).That's why at HiFi shows.....even Munic...

Thank you Harold for the above Post.......Full of emotion and enthusiasm 🥳I suspect however that you meant it to appear in the 'Glanz Thread' where it would be read by more appropriate contributors.....?🧐Regards

This comparison is a little more complex.....Not only do we have different arms, but also different turntables.The Direct-Drive Victor TT-101 against the Belt-Drive TW Raven AC-2.There are many who will claim this renders the comparison 'invalid' ...

I want to thank you again Frogman for that detailed, informative analysis.I can’t admit to being able to hear exactly what you describe between MMs and MCs.....but your examples in these ’shoot-outs’ enable me to perhaps ’train’ myself to listen m...

I've had my three Garrott P77 cartridges for nearly 40 years.I first put a JICO SAS (Boron) stylus in one of them about 6 years ago and then tried the NEO-SAS (Sapphire) and NEO-SAS (Ruby) a few years ago.AS PALLADIAN LOMC CartridgeGARROTT P77/SAS...

Noromance is becoming more confident in his analyses and I think he's spot-on....Frogman and "the very cute pooch" (Princi-a male Principessa) are also correct as usual...at least in Frogman's case....Princi is generally a sideline critic 🤣....I a...

Another new acquisition (thanks to Chakster)........A NOS GRACE SERIES IIDisco version....🕺 though we don't quite know what that means as it has the BERYLLIUM CANTILEVER WITH LINE CONTACT STYLUS just like the normal Series II.Definitely better tha...

Thanks Harold.....The cantilever looks like beryllium to me.....But it might be titanium or even aluminium although someone claims it is boron......There was no box or literature that came with it and the specs page I've seem only lists the stylus...

Yes Frogman,Rita Coolidge's 'Good Old Days' on A&M is one of the most naturally  recorded, all analogue albums I've heard.No theatrics or 'look-at-me' processing in the recording and mastering stages....this has been my 'go-to' album for 40 ye... 
Hear my Cartridges....🎶
But you can’t pressure-fit a stylus to boron....You must use glue.I meant.....what do you think of the sound in my video? 
Hear my Cartridges....🎶
Yes Chak,Very different technology with the boron cantilever needing a load of epoxy....whilst the hollow beryllium is more sophisticated.What do you think of the sound...?

Our quest to find a MM cartridge as close as possible to a current $10,000 Uber LOMC cartridge continues.Here is a new acquisition....GLANZ 610LXA NOS vintage Moving Flux cartridge for which there exists precious little information.It has a nude l...
