    Actually, I've had the chance to compare 2 versions of the ZYX Ultimate Omega:
    1) Gold wiring and high output (0.48)
    2) Silver wiring and low output (0.24)

    To my ears, the silver/low output version was much more resolving and dynamic, better overall. The gold/high output version was lusher and with less bite and attack. All in all, both are very refined cartridges, without sounding bright or etched - IMHO, this is the essence of high-end audio.
    Thanks, did you use a valve phono for the compares? If so, which one?
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD

    Used a Pass XP-25 (non-tube).
