    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    When you say "records" do you mean digital downloads/CD-rips or "digitized" LPs ("records")? Also, how do you back up you 14TB of music?

    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    What is the price of the K50? It’s a shame the Brinkmann’s weak link (no pun intended) is the ethernet link. It would be interesting to compare the K50 vs Innuos over the network, functioning as a Roon server.

    Thanks Ked! I’ll order one and try it out in due time. So far, sounds very promising.

    Not yet. Mine came with a Sylvania 5U4G NOS.

    @montesquieu thanks for sharing. It’s a coincidence that this has arrived a few days ago: Warming up for a comparison with the Pass XP-25.

    Anyone familiar with Entre ET-100/200/300 SUTs? Are they related in any way to My Sonic Lab?

    Anyone heard the X-quisite Cartridge from Thales?

    I’ve owned the XSD-15 SFL and listening once to a JSD Platinum. IMHO, Both sound nothing like the X-quisite.

    To my ears it doesn’t sound like any EMT I’ve listened to. Not sure what you mean by “dynamism”.

    Anyone heard the X-quisite Cartridge from Thales?

    I think I would have gone with the ST, even if the GT was offered to me back then. But it would be interesting to listen to them both.

    Anyone heard the X-quisite Cartridge from Thales?

    I have not auditioned the VdH Stad in my system. I only tried the Colibri (XGP IIRC). Back then, I couldn't get it to work properly in my setup. It was very sibilant and bright sounding. As well as being extremely finicky with tracking.

    Strange. When I ordered there were only 2 options (CA and ST). The website shows only 2 versions for the non-HK market. https://www.x-quisite.ch/cartridges
