      Seldom to see. Community Member Frank upgraded his Airforce Two player with the Tangential Tonearm DERENEVILLE. Unbelievable precision..I think this is the masterpiece among all other Tangential solutions. Two Phonostages connected. Allnic for Tube amping and AS Phonolab for comparisons of the two Tonearms and their different cartridges.

      Speakers B&M BM 35 with analog Preamping ( most important!). No A/D converting at all.

        A Garrard 301 in a beautiful plinth. A huge Transrotor FAT BOB Reference.
        A statement in chrome. George , as a real asthetic, equipped the 301 with an SME tonearm that guides the GRADO Reference Master 2 through the groove. This is also connected to the AS Phonolab phono stage from the german manufacturer Such an ellegance! The SME arm is a 12 inch jewel.

        My question was, of course, which one sounds better?
        George said, that a phasemation transformer will soon be added to the SPU. And then we┬┤ll see.

        Oh yes, I am curios.
