    853, as we say in Blighty, we’re getting “our knickers in a twist”.
    Tang has been absolutely even handed in how he goes about things, and you’re a very considered, diplomatic fellow.
    That sounds like a good mix.

    Not sure how I got jumpy or why I am in quick sand? Here is my exact response to your evaluation of the RS.

The Top Wing products are a hybrid MM/MC design and unlike some of the very low output impedance carts are actually very sensitive to impedance settings as well as VTA. We use AnalogMajik LP and software to dial it in to precise settings. A lot of preconceptions in setup that degrade the sound you can read here on VTA/SRA

    Audiophile Bill's summary I find to be much more on point and while I know not any single cart is going to be everything to everyone, I do know there are some points missing in my experience.

    All things being equal as well, the Top Wing Designs leaning more to MM allow for stylus replacement at 1/10th of the cost of what you pay for any other brands. A lifetime cart.
    So when you posted that the normal impedance setting is 300 ohms on the spheris from all your carts and you didn't know which setting it was at.

    So from this one comment, which I again stand by 100%, I am the *******. You obviously have a solid following with friends and fans alike so naturally they want to stand up for you. I don't know Boonyarat, you personally or your experience in this world so if you felt I was talking down or beneath you I can apologize for that and I do. PeterA pointed out that I should have best served asking my question offline through PM, but many asked for this answer and never received it and it does make a big difference in what this cart sounds like so I asked publicly.

    Nothing more nothing less. My silly rabbit comment tried to add some light comedy to the situation to diffuse it, but didn't seem to serve me at all.

    This is nonsense. I never claimed it was best in the world and just shared my experience for the betterment and/or entertainment of others. Because I am a distributor with financial interest in Top Wing is about the only criticism to my enthusiasm that would be relevant to my responses. Others jumped on board and ordered.

    As far as a "perfect report", one of the most crucial contributions to the a report on the RS is the impedance not being what works best for MC. The low output is suggestive it is a MC design, but it is not.

    This is also a comment that is nonsensical if you have followed my inquiry.

    Lrya Atlas - 1.52 ohms MC
    Air Tight Opus - 1.4 ohms MC
    Koetsu CS - 5ohms MC

    Red Sparrow - 12.3 ohms MM with MC Hybrid

    All of what you mentioned are MC and have very little sensitivity (if any) to higher impedance. So yes they are going to sound the same in your system and have no bearing to validating Tang's loading of the RS. The RS which likes higher impedance and was never mentioned what it ended up sounding best at to him.

    Even if I am only speaking to myself at this point I do want to leave this important point here for those outside of WBF that may find this useful to know. As Tang stated there is no information from the mfg on the packaging after all.
