There is looking like a lot can be offered in performance and SQ for the value of these Cartridges, and the recent comparison to other more expensive models from better known Brands, have resulted in demo...

Re: Owston next meet ?

I've been driving to Worksop a few times a week and when seeing Doncaster on the Signage,

Re: reasons to be cheerful...ongoing

I thoroughly enjoy my Quad 57's in both Standard and Stacked Array. Prior to lockdown and now post lockdown restrictions I am regularly listening to other ESL's as well. I could quite easily enjoy hearing other versions of a ESL as well. It is looking like a Triple Stacked 57 Array might be availabl...

Re: Vinyl playback and synergy...

I have a owned a Batch of Cork Pads approx 40x40x5mm for a very long time.
These are ideal for my purposes, and have found permanent use.
They are used as footers for Casing Feet and as footers for used Dedicated Footers.
They are also used as the support pads under other Shelves on the Rack Set Up.

Re: Vinyl playback and synergy...

Vinyl is happily creating surprise encounters for the user who perseveres. I can happily encourage building on the Support Structure, by placing the TT on a Sub Plinth with an Isolation footer between the Sub Plinth and Cabinet. A few cork pads as a initial footer to be used, can create a subtle cha...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

Hi Cressy, Ant A good write up on the impressions made with Ant's Tonearm. Cressy's review, makes the Tonearm sound like there is a lot on offer from the design, resulting in leaving a very good impression. It would be good to hear this at a future event. When I am assessing any New Devices on a TT,...

Interesting Radio Programme Covering Listening to Music and Sound

The Link is a Radio 4 Presentation that I had a opportunity to listen to whilst on a Journey.
I found it to be very enjoyable and in keeping with reasons why listening to Music and Sound is very attractive to a Person.

Nearly every Album I have kept close to me has possibly had a Sprinkle of this Mans Magic found within it.

A True pursuer of recording excellence has passed.

Re: Audax HD-3P DIY Re-gassing Part II

It has been almost Three Years since I started this Thread. I used the WAD KLS 3 Speakers with Pumped Up HD-3P's during 2017 and for part of 2018, they even got an appearance at a Owston, where 'Steve s', Nick and a couple of others had a listen on the Sunday. Shortly after this the KLS 3 were to ha...

Re: Ortofon cadenza blue

There is a Man by the name of Dave Brookes who is very fondly thought off on this forum.

I'm sure he will be able to offer a generous information about these Cartridges.

Re: Ortofon cadenza blue

I am a Ortofon Cartridge user, and have also been party to comparisons of other Ortofon Cartridges, where the demonstrations took place on another TT and Tonearm the same as I own. I lean toward the Transparency of the Ortofon's I have heard, with the noticeable Mid Range. There is also a Cadenza Bl...
