    Excellent choice. Many would argue, including me, that the Etna SL smokes the competition.

    My dealer installed my new Lyra Etna a couple of days ago to replace the Skala. For the first day I missed the Skala as the tonal balance of the Etna seemed on the bright side. Next day it was much better, very positive and am eager to hear it when it is broken in. How long is the process of break in for this cartridge?

    20 hours I would guess. The Etna is anything but bright after it has settled.

    I think the sound will continue to change for at least 100 hours. It takes a long time for the cantilever to loosen up.
