        I'd like to hear this one too.

        What others (phono cartridge) are you longing to experience or read about?

          Hmmm The MYSonic Lab Platinum maybe. I was going to say the Koetsu limited edition Jasper but I've heard that already. A bit of a departure because it's got some extra speed to it over other stone bodies while keeping the Koetsu soul intact. I want one. Lemme think some more

            Maybe they will have the cartridge at AXPONA Chicago. if so, I'd be interested in taking a look/hearing it.

            Thanks Marty.

              Leave it to Jack to pick the rare birds.

                  Steve promised to bring it by already mounted in the VPI arm but he hasn't shown up with it.

                  Sounded great in the Avenger at VPI's in November. Reminded me a bit of the A95. Tasted like chicken too!

                        I would like to listen to the My Sonic Labs Signature Platinum and the Air Tight Magnum Opus (and compare them).

                          The Air Tight cartridge is called the OPUS-1 or OPUS-1 Ermitage.

                          Magnum Opus was the a concept name that was temporary at CES. Opus-1 became the name shortly afterwards.

                          Very nice sounding cartridge. I've installed three of them. (including one of the original concept bodies).

                            Thank you for the correction.

                            How do you think the sound of the Opus-1 compares to the sound of the PC-1 Supreme?
