It still had nice tone but it was hindering the resolution a bit than when testing with a higher output cart that was set at a lower MC gain setting.

I do not know. It just does not cut the mustard when somebody puts up his strong opinions here without any prove. Circuit diagram, picture of the build, measurements ? Fehlanzeige.
Allready regret my post.... Now I realize its weight

Anyway, no measurements, schematics etc.... just my humble subjective listening impression, corroborated by the opinions of other listeners....

For decades people have discussed up and down about all kinds of exotic components, and their influence on the soundquality, and here we have the Paradise, which in my humble opinion is way above average in all parameters, made of only good and sturdy off the shelf industrial components, no batwings, no Southburmese cockroach testicles, no emperes name written in gold, and no 100Dollars/cm wire involved, only good engineering to make it all come together. That by itselves can pose a threath to some people, like robbing someone of their religion
Sorry for my bad french.

You still haven't answered to my question.
What is your full set up and your reference phono?

It's an 150pages long thread!

I would be curious to get linked to it to understand the logic behind certain statements!!!

For example the setup of QUAN, post 1690 on the Paradise Builders thread.
I call that decent.

Found it!!
If kenwood KS770D table with dynavector karat cartridge is way above average...then you are just supporting my line of reasoning!

That set up is crap!!! You are lucky if you can hear 40% of the information cut on the vinyl!

This is what makes me wonder...!!!

Again if you want a really educated critic on the paradise we can take it off line.
Conversely, if you want to continue getting feedbacks from people who don't know what the heck they are talking about..it's your choice.
I know you are a professional designer and that you know better than this!

Cheers!
