This is why I want to improve the sound from my Studer. I think tape should sound better than tt in bigger margin than this.

    To answer Ron’s question. Yes, I prefer the Opus to Coralstone.

    Tape sound quality is variable, just like vinyl sound quality. I have only heard R2R tape a few times directly compared to vinyl in the same system. I have no difficulty believing that a top vinyl source can sound as good or better than some tape sources.

    Quick Question - I am considering an Air Tight Opus-1, but cannot find any cartridge loading info on the net or various sites. My ARC - Ref Phone 2se has loading capabilities of 50,100, 200, 400, 1000, 2500 and 47K ohms. The impedance of the Opus is 1.4 ohms.

    For those who have listened or own an Air Tight Opus-1 cart, what to do prefer to load it at with your phone pre?
