Does anyone have any experience with a Sutherland Little Loco?
Hello Lewm, I don't know what he did exactly. He did nothing to the LL, but made the Sussurro low impedance somehow. My understanding is that the canti, stylus, suspension, and body are all the same, not sure about the wire/coils/generator, etc.  
Does anyone have any experience with a Sutherland Little Loco?
I wish there were a list of recommended cartridges for these types of stages, I'd start experimenting Quoting myself, there's a long and short version of my findings. I ended up with a Soundsmith Sussurro cartridge, but the Low Z (Low impedanc... 
Auditioning The Fyne 703 Soon
I went to listen to the F703s a few weeks ago and also bought them on the spot, although the fact the proprietor offered to sell me the demos at a nice discount didn’t hurt. Still dialing them in and really liking what I am hearing and so far my o... 
More news on the Herron Line Stage
Which Herron? I recently got a used VTSP-3A Rev03 and feel the same way.  
A cartridge that mates well with the Sutherland Loco phono preamp?
FYI here is a review of the Little Loco MK II (the MK II probably being the subject of this thread) from stereophile Jan 2022. He says "But now, with the Ultra Eminent Ex driving Sutherland Engineering's Little Loco, I never want to change cartrid... 
A cartridge that mates well with the Sutherland Loco phono preamp?
The My sonic labs cartridges have 1 ohm impedance My Ortofon has 6 ohms and I believe most of the MC Ortofons have around that as well The Audiotechnica ART series have about 12 ohms as does my ART-9  Many spec sheets don't list so you need to ... 
A cartridge that mates well with the Sutherland Loco phono preamp?
@ghdprentice I would normally agree, however the phono stage in question is a transimpedance design and so is not your typical stage.  I am using a Well Tempered Amadaus MK II FWIW  
A cartridge that mates well with the Sutherland Loco phono preamp?
I have the Little Loco also and have the same question. I have tried an Ortofon Rondo Red and an Audiotechnica ART-9. Both sound very good, the AT better but it's probably just a better cartridge. From what I've read the cartridge's internal imped... 
Biamp question
I’ve never used internal XOs (I built my speakers without XOs), but my understanding is that they are in the speaker, so if you connect to the speaker terminals you will be using them. So you could just connect the Parasound to the LF terminals o... 
Biamp question
I guess I won’t know that until I try it. On the crossover question, I want to get a crossover that already matches the crossover points of the speakers. External XOs are adjustable. I use the First Watt B4, Marchand makes them, and several oth... 
Biamp question
The gain on Parasound is adjustable so I believe I should be able to match the gain by adjusting on the Parasound to match the Rogue. If the output of the Parasound is louder than the Rouge then you are good. But if the Rouge plays louder, turn... 
Biamp question
If I’m not mistaken don’t you need to make sure that both apps have the same amount of gain? My experience with using very different amps (LF = PP KT88, Class D GaN, Class AB SS and HF 2A3 SET) that within my listening range (75 db - 100 db) th... 
What's up with Innuos?
+1 @chilehed Sense works very well on my ZEN and the SQ was better than Roon when I fired up Sense in July 2021 (don't know if there's a new version of Roon that sounds better). Roon functionality was awesome, but it costs money and I can get a l... 
Interesting information from Analog Planet on Stylus Cleaner Onzow Zero Dust.
worst was Stylast & First. You could tell under the microscope what fluid it was?
