Dear @thr1961  : As you said a bnew audio item in our system changes the " picture ", we are prepared and expected that that can happens. You own a very nice system and the problem with the Safir it's not if you like it or not ( as we said we are...

Comparison of sonic qualities of some tonearms
Dear @whart  : " where I come out is that most people rely on anecdotals (or reviews?) based on cartridge and arm since as was pointed out early on, it’s pretty hard to evaluate different tone arms in isolation. "   The real problem ( other that...
