@chauncey  hi welcome to this world of r2r. step 1 , get a great mentor … I had one .. step 2, do not get consumer 4 track decks , my point is why bother , you can stream good music that may sound better than a 4 track deck. About an yr ago I ... 
Roon hq player
@audiotroy  that’s what I had believed too, till I heard from experts from t+a. I guess I will have to try it and then compare it with the wolf and see which sounds better to me in my room.    
Roon hq player
@jgoldrick i looked at the forum and I couldn’t find any comparison between a computer playing roon hq vs a high end streamer playing roon   
Lyra Etna Lambda SL tracking force
@o_holter  cannot agree with you more . I have the analogue magik software which do the same but easier with a computer program . I start by setting up the sme v with a spirit level to be horizontal at the level of the head( we all know there is... 
Lyra Etna Lambda SL tracking force
@p_vincent_jones  my Lyra etna sl now sounds best with tracking force of 1.68 as recommended. @rauliruegas  i ordered a Lyra atlas lambda sl about 5 months ago and haven’t heard any updates on eta from my local dealer … the us distributor is no... 
Field coil dava cartridge
@dover  the verisimo was mounted on a Durand tosca arm playing on a wave kinetic nvs reference turntable. The Lyra lambda was mounted on a sme v arm on a sme 30 table . Swapping the cartridges made the Lyra lambda even better through my system.   
Field coil dava cartridge
@rauliruegas IMO for my taste , the Lyra was a clear winner over the ortofon verisimo. Music had more layers , more detail , much larger soundstage and much more dynamics. The verisimo was softer and much smaller( the sound stage ) and lacked the ...

@rauliruegas  Your insight into cartridges and analyzing them are very much appreciated. I look forward to reading them … Interacting in these forums is excellent for us as we pursue the holy grail of music and learn from each other .   
Field coil dava cartridge
@bonzo75  i ordered it a month ago when I started this thread . the Kondo silver with xlr is wired in to the arm with no din connector. So I won’t be able to try it on the sme . I alternate between a Cardas clear beyond xlr along with an audien...

A very detailed listening session described in an articulate way… dava seems to check the most boxes.  
Field coil dava cartridge
@mikelavigne  it’s your experience with the dava that got us interested in the cartridge… a killer deal at the price . If it’s equal to the other cartridges that you have. the hum you had was a concern but now you have fixed it . Jonathan said h... 
Field coil dava cartridge
@rdk777  the opinions by mike is what got me interested in the dava. I have read what he has said in both forums. I was hoping someone else has heard the dava in their system and what their opinion was.  
Field coil dava cartridge
Thanks everyone for your response . @lewm i did read about Mike’s comments about the dava. He’s a bit hard to read cause there is a lot of heart in what he says 😊. I love my Lyra, I like my ortofon verisimo . I am tending towards getting the dav... 
Best Dedicated Streamer
@tracyiver , I have the red wolf 2 sx. joe Parvey can make you one even though it says to be released soon in the website. I had the wolf 3sx and joe upgraded it to the red wolf with a separate linear power supply. You can see that in my system...
