    853, you donít suck at jokes.
    I suck at trying not to be stuck up and taking myself too seriously.
    The bane of the OCD audiofool, I guess.

    Ked, I did my own compare, as you did yours. I donít need your offer tbh, but thanks anyway.

    The fact you donít see the relevance of my post is amusing to me at least. I suspect 853 gets it too.

    Anyway, you have now said the RS liked to be loaded open at 1k or 47k - instead of lower.

    What impedance does the RS prefer when using a SUT?


    cheers
    Dear XV and all,

    Maybe I had too little info of this cart because the mfg donít say sh_t on the packaging. Like Shane, I was at the impression that this is a low output mc cart and no need to use in the mm input of phono. So now we are all clear that to make this RS really sings we need to use this $15,000 cart (in US really? ) in the mm input and a step up which we will have more debate whether my step up is a good match or not. Until now I havenít said once that this cart is beaten by my other carts. I have not yet find a cart that fit all my preferences. What I have said about this carts were itís strengths and some sound attributes that I found not as high as the other two carts in comparison. Joshua just got so jumpy about it and react in such a way that only get him into quick sand imo.

    It is just one manís opinion but happens to be a little different from all who have been saying. I have never gone ape at anyone who is in love with any product. Itís their hearing not mine. Why would I even argue with that. On another thread, I said I like the silver gold Kuro cable and someone without hearing it in his system already said it is colored. I really didnít give a damn and get all defensive because I hear what I hear. People are entitled to their own opinion.

    And 853guy. You donít need to rap to me about who has skin-in-the-game and who is not. Audiocrack once said that I am one of the ďdiplomaticĒ commenters. I donít mean no harm to people who sell audio for living. In fact I view myself as one of the supporters of this industry because I am the buyer. You people who sell audio products should appreciate people like me and so many others in this forum. Quite a few people in this forum know very well I chose carefully what info I should release and what not in public just because I donít want to be in the way of their business. Read my past comments and try to find one that I be so absolute to say product a beats product b, or product b knock out product c.

    Later on I can put the RS into my EMT mm input and use the Airtight step up. I can play with different setting as Joshua recommended and see what happens. Shane, Peter you gonna have to pm me later if you want to know. I am the person with no skin-in-the-game and this is my way of pulling someone with skin-in-the-game out of quick sand.


    Be wise. Use your wisdom.

    Tang in the last months is doing very special report,impartial,with a lot of perfect details,of all his cart and tonearm writing better than a reporter and all in this forum congrats him for his perfect report.

    Now seems Tang understand nothing in hifi because don't tell RS is the best cart in the world.

    Hey Tang, if it means anything youíve always struck me as someone whoís pretty humble, good natured, genuinely curious and uber enthusiastic.
    Normally I would not have much of a feel for someone with so many analog rigs (envy? skepticism?), but youíre an exception.
    Your wholly positive mindset shines thru your words, so you really have nothing to be apologetic about.
    I think I speak for many here, please donít be put off posting your thoughts publicly. However it seems you are, and I fully understand.

    Just to question and step on my incompetency in arm cart setup a little bit more . I don’t install carts on tonearms by myself. If ones want to point finger at this fact, it is totally ok by me. I am no pretender. I do have a competent tone arm guy working for me. Of course I also have fingers to adjust the knobs on my EMT phono . This I can do on my own. My tone arm guy has small experience. He does all arm cart setup for most big systems in Thailand. These include for example all three Techdas models, AS Invictus, Kronos, Kondo Ginga, EMT 927, various Kuzma, various TW Acoustics, Brink Mann Balance, Triangle art Ref, Theles, AMG, various Technics, etc. For tone arms, all Graham, all Telos, SAT, various SME, Thales Simplicity, Axiom, various Kuzma, various Acoustic Signatures, all Brinkmann, etc. For carts, so many and almost all the expensive ones. Three biggest audio dealers here including Boonyarat use him to setup tt, arms, carts for their customers. All tts in the system shown in monoandstereo stereo from Thailand he did all setups.

    Kind regards,
    Tang

    Other thing,
    i have phono CH P1 with X1,so i can match in perfect way all the cartridges.
    I have same cart of Tang,Atlas sl,Opus 1,GFS,Coralstone,and what he describes in his system are the same things i listen in my system,so i think Tang load the cart in perfect way

    Hi Marc,

    Thank you for liking me. I wish you were Keira Knightly.
    I gues you like the poster I posted earlier in the day.

    Hello Tango,

    Pleasure to make your acquaintance.

    My comments were directed at spiritofmusic’s posts, and his posts specifically, which is why it was his posts I quoted in my replies. Up until post #177, I had made no mention of you, and only did so because PeterA asked whether there was a closeted inference I believed you were spreading disinformation, which I believe I clarified definitively with my response to him in that same post.

    I do not know, and do not pretend to know anything about you other than what you write on this forum. Therefore I cannot know what you choose to disclose and what you do not, nor your reasons for doing so, and have no interest in trying to guess. I believe I referenced this in my reply to PeterA when I said:

    As I believe my posts in this thread are testament to, taking sides in forum disputes is of no interest to me, and idly guessing about the motivations of individuals I do not know is a waste of my time. I have no reason to doubt the veracity of your comments - as I just posted to spiritofmusic in post #180, I consider all opinions worth holding lightly, and I attempt to evaluate them on a case-by-case basis relative to the content of the post, not the personality of the poster.

    Nevertheless, I stand by my skin-in-the-game comments. To repeat what I said for the sake of clarity, skin-in-the-game is always relevant apropos accusations of misinformation - but that was neither a veiled accusation toward you, nor toward Joshua. When I said in post #172:

    Quote Originally Posted by 853guy

In the specific case mentioned above, the small, boutique manufacturer was far more vulnerable to potential downside from misleading comments made on an online forum than the poster who made them.
    ...please note, the line “…the specific case mentioned above… ” is a direct reference and response to spiritofmusic’s comments re: the propagation of fake news and a recent apology he made to a manufacturer who is not the topic of this thread, i.e., NOT you and Top Wing.

    Again, that is not to justify Joshua’s responses to you, as I believe I made clear when I said further:

    Quote Originally Posted by 853guy

    Note, I specifically said “relevant apropos accusations of misinformation” prefaced by numerous questions that suggested irrespective of whether one is a dealer/distributor/manufacturer or an anonymous punter/blogger, we are all ultimately responsible for ensuring we are not party to the propagation of disinformation, and much more importantly, especially in cases in which it has real potential for harm (see footnote (1) at the bottom of post #172). This is of course especially true for those that have more to lose than those who have less to lose. That was the context for my skin-in-the-game comments - no more or less than that.

    As to absolutist comments and “product a beats product b, or product b knock out product c” I believe the bolded part below adequately deals with my own personal preferences apropos subjective cartridge evaluations:

    Quote Originally Posted by 853guy

It just means we are currently devoid of some information allowing us to better contextualise their comments - i.e., specific, repeatable, directly-comparable set-up variables which as with all things analogue often have large scale impacts on how one perceives performance.
    I hope that clarifies things somewhat.

    This will be my last post in this thread. But allow me to say I do not sell hi-fi in either capacity as a dealer or distributor, online or via brick and mortar, am not a manufacturer or designer, do not work for a print magazine or online blog as a hi-fi reviewer, and have no plans to do so. I derive zero income from the hi-fi industry. Like you, my income is derived from pursuits completely unrelated to the hi-fi industry, though also like you, it has received a generous portion of it, and will so again in the near future. Whether I’m appreciated or not is of no interest to me, I just buy what I like.

    Best,

    853guy

    Tang, someone wanting me to be Keira Knightley is probably best kept to a PM 😘.
    I do admire your taste.
    Now if you were Gillian Anderson, weíd be really talking 🙂.
