Default Planar Upgrade

There was a kit available here in the UK some years ago,made by CS Audio(I think) called the Split Slab.
This consisted of a new top/bottom plinth Xerxes style,but was more like the Pink Triangle Little Pink Thing.
I believe PT had a hand in the design of the split slab.

Default Re: Re: Planer 3 (Nagaoka MP11)

Originally posted by sreten

The Nagaoka MP11 Boron is an upgrade derivative of the once
popular MP11 cartridge. From what I remember the compliance
of the Boron is a little high. The standard MP11 has a rich sound
as is quite sensitive to capacitive loading. A new Boron stylus
(the boron refers to the boron cantilever) is not cheap.

Picked up one of these (Nagaoka MP-11) used, and mounted it on a Sumiko Pro-Ject 1.2. Seems I may have the capacitive loading you mentioned as there is a marked high frequency rolloff. Wouldn't have guessed it from the specs as 47K and 100pf *seem* normal. Cartridge resistance is listed as 4900 ohms. Phono section is vintage HK730 receiver - which has worked fine with many other table/cartridge combos.
specs here: http://harmankardon.com/specificatio...=HK730&sType=H

High frequencies do not seem distorted, only attenuated. Bass, Midbass, and lower midrange all see OK too. Any way to accomodate this cartridge on this table (if I crank the treble, it begins to sound decent - or at least normal) - or is it just shot?

Also have a later model Carver Receiver that I could swap with the HK. Any thoughts?
