Interesting point of view. In Germany we say that the shoemaker has bad shoes.
Yes, the Adyton plus Virgo and Forsell frontend was really something. That was my golden times, when i had all this amazing designers around me plus Malkolm and his team. Also my engineer of that time, Berd Theiß was pretty decent. He graduated as a RF engineer with "Summa cum Laude". When i saw the layouts for the Cerubin bass amp spread out in his lab is was so pretty that i could not help but went up in tears.

This monster draws 3kW at idle and weights 180kG. It is a 4 man lift.

Here we say: "Em casa de ferreiro, espeto de pau" (In the house of a blacksmith, wooden skewer)

PS: My caps are already in transit

Hope I can listen to the Paradise this weekend.

Fine, i hope it works right away. I assume you got Heseners sider web grounding instructions.
Marcin, the Zeners have arrived. They look beautiful. Many thanks.

Default MC Anna

Hi Joachim,

Do you have this MC Anna?
How does it performs compare to e.g. Shelter 901 if you know this one.

Thanks in advance.

What i find interesting is the replicant stylus. It looks very similar to the chisel that cuts the grove. The original Gyger was that way.
It has a rather unfortunate combination of 6 Ohm and only 0,2mV output so when you use an active pre-pre it has a more then 6dB noise disadvantage against the Lyra Titan i that puts out 0,5mV with 5,5 Ohm. The Diamond Dove could serve it well.
Also interesting is that the mechanical design is somewhat the opposite of the minimalistic MC90. I could imagine that is works better in heavy arms and gives a more romantic sound. What i really desire is the Atlas but it is out of reach at the moment and the Titan i has a long way to go until it is worn down.
I will get a Spiral Grove Centroid arm soon though and Frank Schröder has already tested his arm board on my SG1. It fits, so when Frank puts his new tangential arm in production there is hope that i can listen to that too.
