Has Allnic solved the tracking issues with this new design? I had an Allnic Puritas many years ago that had problems tracking deep bass. Thankfully my dealer allowed me to trade it in on something else. Other than the tracking issue it was a nice sounding cart.
Spirit yes, the May is a definite step up from the Spring and the Yggy. Certainly well worth the extra money if you can afford it. As far as glare is concerned I found the Yggy to have a little on certain recordings, were the Holo's did not.
Hi Spiritofmusic, I have not tried the I2S on the May yet. Did try the Singxer SU-6 I2S on the Spring 2 and did not find it superior to USB. The Singxer sounded a little less clear to me, which to my mind means it probably introduced more jitter. From what I've read people did like the I2S...
Hi guys, Have not posted much in some time, but think this Dac is worth posting about.
I've had the May in my system for almost 4 weeks now. I traded in my Holo Spring 2 KTE Dac for the May KTE version. Had the Spring 2 for about a year. I have about 400 hrs on the May so far.
I'm using a I-9...
Sorry I don't have pictures. I no longer have the Allnic. I remember it being fairly simple to do. If you follow where the leads from the switch go, that is where the you would solder in the resistor instead. You would need to desolder the switch and place the resistor across the same points. If...
In the H3000 there is no way to change resitors without desoldering and resoldering. Don't know what the inside of the H1500 looks like but I don't think you can swap resistors without soldering. Some phono stages are designed that way though.
Different solders do sound different...
Yeah, could be difficult. Another way to do it would be to just make a small rectangular piece and then drill out the holes for the screws. Could probably just trace it on the material by turning the cartridge upside down. Though not sure how well Isodamp drills.
Lots of time for tweaking these days.;) Not sure if it would improve anything, but you could try making cartridge screw washers out of Isodamp. That way the vibes from the cartridge screws would not pass to the headshell as easy.

It’s not the same. Not even close.
And I am a music fan. Hands down. And proud.
for years I’ve had a pair of large advents, a marantz 2240b, a gold ring turntable, and adcom 555.
And it’s been great. Maybe cost me...
Interesting. Seems like the more resolving a system gets the more small things make a difference.
I am, and will be using a LPS for the new server.
Was hoping to avoid USB. Liked Lynx spidf better. Any experience with optical ethernet isolation?
Right now I'm using a fanless win 7 PC with Lynx card outputting spidf. Have a SonicTransporter I9 with roon server ordered so I can try out the ethernet input and Roon. May also try optical isolation in the near future. I am also using an external usb drive.
Have you tried the ethernet input...
