      I love a clean and tidy analog setup. What phono-stage(s) do you use?

  • A bit of rearranging so I could get my LP12 up and running again. It's sounding great with Lyra Delos cart running thru the TW phono stage. All 4 tables up and running to play at any time.

      So which turntable do you end up listening to the most? Are you able to sort out the differences of cartridge, tonearms and phonostages to have a favorite turntable?

      HI Barry
      hard question to answer - but in simple terms in my system and setup.

      SP10mk3 is the all out assault, most revealing in good and not so good ways depending on the recording - DD does bass and bass drive so well - this setup gets the majority of the playtime especially modern recordings, electronica and highly dynamic recordings.

      Exclusive P3 - like the SP10, starts and stops in less than a second so easy to use and a great all rounder - does everything well.

      TW belt drive table - excels in space and tone - especially synergistic with jazz, 60's recordings than can be a little threadbare like Beatles/Stones/Dylan etc

      LP12 - might not be as dynamic as the DD's but sweet, musical and nimble on its feet.

      Well it's really a sweet suite that's for sure. Buying a turntable is such a crap shoot since there are just so many variables involved. I think you've solved that problem - buy a few!

      Love the SME tables (both my tables by other manufacturers use SME V arms)

      Very Beautiful Turntable! Congrats. I will be very interested in your thoughts on the Micro Seiki as compared to your SME. Both great turntables. Guessing that the Micro Seiki will be a little more dynamic.

      Thank you Ritmo and Hawk.

      Yes, both are great turntables. I will have more to write about differences in the weeks ahead.
