  3. Me, too. Loads of LP's and a 2M Black stylus. Fast and reliable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. We're a crazy bunch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Agreed. Of course, it depends on the resolution of the rest of the system, too. I'm afraid we're back to, "if you hear a difference you like, use. If not, don't use it". Ah, it's a simple life... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Sorry, I forgot the important bit! Electrical circuit manuals acknowledge that components can transform mechanical vibrations into unwanted electrical noise. Phono pre with tiny signals I imagine would be easily interrupted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It seems as though products try to A) isolate outside vibration B) drain away internal vibration C) both Microphony is real and measurable, so there's no problem there. The only question is, does it make any difference? Clearly stuff that moves (turntables, CD players) benefit from having the reading apparatus engaging with the most "still" thing to be read. I think most agree there. Tube dampers seem to make quite a difference, too, to my ears. Anywhere you have electric current and heat you have motion, and a tube ticks both boxes. SS phono pre? I'd think there'd be a benefit there, too. Tiny electrical signals passing through vibrating parts? Seems fair. Doesn't it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. +1. You're the one who has to listen to it, so do what makes you happy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. No. No it is not. You've achieved something special! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Not in Australia yet, only just released in the UK. £99 The cynic in me says it's a cheapish entry level product to get us in, hoping we'll get interested in other products. If so, wouldn't they want it to make an obvious and repeatedly demonstrable, positive difference? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. In fairness, they've been on the bamboo bandwagon for some time, and it's a tad more sophisticated than the block. It's also cheap enough to have a crack at, I reckon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Which Ortofon is that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The Bronze is a very substantial upgrade over the Blue. Very substantial. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
