Seems serious

I have the Atlas playing now.
Lyras are known for the speed, resolution and air they command and the Atlas has that in spades. But that is not what really surprised me. The tone it has contains a power and fullness that sounds like the real thing. There is absolutely no brightness, spit or harshness. The bass goes down very deep and is powerful.
I had to lower the volume on my sub a bit and play with the crossover frequency to my Enviee drivers. Ones adjusted the bass shows great ability to differentiate. The Atlas puts out a healthy volume so i get a very dynamic and loud sound without cranking my preamp much.
I heard many great cartridges but i have to agree with most that heard it :
This is one of the finest cartridges out there, maybe the finest.
I have absolutely no complain.

Thanks J. It seems that the Spiral arm is more to your liking than the Wheaton which you were using, which makes your newer arm absolutely brilliant!

The Wheaton is a great arm too. I really like it with the Olypos.
That gives a rather warm presentation.
The major flaw of the Wheaton is a beam resonance at ca.300Hz.
I think that gives it this robust tone.
I always used the Whetaon before i got the Centroid.
It was the first arm to my knowledge that had all 5 parameters adjustable incl. azimuth.

Is this measured resonance or subjective impression?
Never had one but have enjoyed the reviews and the super adjustments that every arm should have available like this one.
The new 12" Triplanar had to keep the effective arm mass down and went to carbon fiber, but is still slightly heavier.
Not sure if Cf will be the band aid needed and how they suppress those out in the end.
Interesting times with vinyl now!

David
