    ZYX Diamond vs Jan Allaerts MC 2 Formula One

    Yesterday 2 my friend compared these 2 cartridges and the final result is that ZYX win in everything.
    We like MC 2 Formula one,price in Italy euro 11.890,but yesterday compared in the system

    Thorens with Da vinci Grandezza
    Pre Shindo Monbrison
    Amp Goldmund Telos 360
    Montagna speaker

    One friend told me the ZYX Diamond was more natural,transparent and much better in everything

    Wait so you swapped it at Pietro's?
    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

    Can you compare the FM 122 to the Shindo?

    Yes was from Pietro,
    The Shindo is a preamp line and phono,while FM 122 is only phono

    Is the ZYX UNIverse Premium only available in North America? If not I urge you to audition the TOL ZYX cartridge as it is better even than the ZYX Diamond which I gather is distributed everywhere but the USA

    MSRP on the ZYX UNIverse Premium is $15K and will IMO outperform the Diamond by a huge margin

    My friend has the old Diamond,now i see the new diamond has a different design
    There is confusion on ZYX with new Ultimate series and we don't know which are top in this moment,the new Ultimate or the Uni Premium,or others

    as best I think I understand Mehran who owns Sora Sound here in the USA brings the Premium into the USA but not globally

    Mehran is a member here BTW
