    Next week i will put on my Bergmann Sindre and i will report the difference with Goldfinger Statement and Coralstone Diamond.
    I think will be in the middle.
    In future i would like to buy a AF3 or Bergmann Galder with 4 arms and with Goldfinger,Coralstone Diamond,Opus 1 and Atlas sl that i would like to buy in future,besides my Thorens 124 Schopper with
    Ortofon SPU A95.
    My system is 90% finish,so i love enjoy with different cartridges.
    For the arm i have no idea which arm buy,SAT,Durand and Vertere are the best but too expensive.
    Regards ti everybody

    Hi Gian!

    This is the best cartridge I've ever heard, bar none! I've compared it to the A95 (no comparison) and the top of the line ZYX (again, not even close). Oh, comparisons were done on the Kronos Pro with the Black Beauty tonearm...
    It does the "smooth" thing like the ZYX, while still being extremely "alive" and dynamic like the A95.

    cheers,
    alex

    I've heard the Opus 1 on a couple of occasions.. as Alex said above, it is really special! Would like to know how it compares to the new My Sonic Lab Platinum Signature, as they are both sourced from the same manufacturer.....and the MSL Platinum Signature is supposed to be his ne plus ultra!!

    After 2 hour of listening,so we see after 100 hours,i can give one small judgment.

    Is not simple write in English but i will try.

    After listening for 2 months GFS and Coralstone diamond,i can say that Opus 1 is really incredible,seems the sum of the positive things of both Koetsu and GFS with better low frequencies.
    The bass is more deeper and dynamic and more real.
    Instrument are bigger and image and depht is bigger.
    Sound is natural like koestu and fast,open and dynamic like GFS
    Voice and instrument are palpable in the room and sound has a good body,more than GFS
    About the voice i prefer a little Koetsu,little more natural,but i have to wait 100 hour at least

    The sound is open,liquid,fast but with body and very deep low
    Koetsu has bass,mid mid/ high fantastic,very very little roll off on high,GFS is explosive and very transparent on mid and high,but with less body,Opus 1 is open,transparent on mid but with body

    But at the end are 3 incredible cartridges and which you can buy you don't wrong.
    We are crazy and we are talking of small difference and details.
