two inputs
4 different resistance/capacitance sets

amazing with xv1
You have to pay addional for resistive/capacitance settings?

btw, Awesome table - Pioneer Pl L1 has always interested me - the linear tracking arm looks substantial. Any reliability issues with the arm and are they easy to fix?

I love my Pioneer Exclusive P3 and P10

Hi everyone

Think I have located my next phono

Vitus SP102 with 4 modules

Big congrats!!! I know nothing about vinyl, and very little about Vitus (other than it is often mentioned in the same sentence as Gryphon which i do know and like a ton)...but from the reviews, i can imagine that one of the many things you will enjoy about this piece...is when you get complex musical passages (say, classical)...and you can [effortlessly] elect to listen to each of the various different instruments each playing their own musical line...or equally effortlessly 'flip back' to listening to all of them make music together...that is quite a feat that i have rarely heard in systems but is a totally different and sheer delight when a system allows one to do it effortlessly without having to 'mentally make the effort'.

Purely a guess of course, but i have to imagine extreme control and resolving power are just a few of the attributes of this piece...looking forward to reading more about your observations as you get to know the piece...

Oh good, glad it helped... my XP-25 is wrapped around right now, leaving only the front as is, and in the back, a shield drapes over as best as possible... eagerly awaiting your thoughts on the Vitus.
