    Thank you Peter. I described quite a bit about Opus1 relative to Atlas SL in Madfloyd’s thread in another forum that you are also in.
    I listened to the Red Sparrow for a few hours today on SAT/AF1P. Can’t judge the cart while it’s still cold. But it certainly reminds me of the time I listened to Atlas SL on the same arm in my system for the first time. If one is not accustomed to hearing super details and transparent cart, he can easily be impressed by this Red Sparrow the first heard.

    Kind regards,
    Tang

    Yes, I had read your comments about the Opus/Atlas on MadFloyd's thread. Thank you for those well written impressions. I'm curious about how the new Red Sparrow will sound compared to the Opus, and then compared to the Atlas. I'm in no hurry as these cartridges need time to break in.

    Heard the Top Wing Red Sparrow at The Generalís. Very impressed with how it sounded literally brand new tbh. I know the Sumile in the Generalís system as a benchmark - based on what I heard I would take the Top Wing. It was especially vivid sounding with lots of fine resolution without calling attention to itself. Dynamically very potent also with lots of rich textures. Yes - I want one 😁

    Forgot to say that the bottom end was very deep and textured. Lots of resolution of colour down there.

    Electronics were the Mayer D3A phono and 10Y linestage with Wavac monoblocks.

    OK, Tang. Was that photo taken with an iPhone? If so, I may forget about the macro Nikkor lense that I am thinking of getting.

    Taken from Samsung S8 Peter. If you look closely, it isn’t very focus. The macro function wasn’t on.
