Does Gian eat more often than I do?
“So after listening to Decca’s Scottish Fantasia Oistrakh original, Kogan Columbia Tchaikovsky, and Szell’s Beethoven eroica original, I took out my two key LPs that are the most challenging for a system test and component compare.they will pressure me to play MoFi LPs during audition
Was this at Mike’s? Didn’t realize he replaced his WADAX with an Oppo!“So after listening to Decca’s Scottish Fantasia Oistrakh original, Kogan Columbia Tchaikovsky, and Szell’s Beethoven eroica original, I took out my two key LPs that are the most challenging for a system test and component compare.
The MoFi one step Eric Clapton unplugged, a recording masterpiece where the guitar transients said pluck off to other systems, and claps showcased the breadth of the stage and the separation between multiple hands.
Then I took out my one LP for a desert island, the MoFi Santana. Listening to these (de) feats of recording, that would have normal exposed weaknesses in lesser systems. I could not detect any difference between the analog and the oppo, proving how well the equipment truly disappeared, leaving no analog colouration, that the more clued audiophiles will be so grateful for “
Having heard it in around 10 systems over 4 years, and having visited the factory, my thoughts. (...)
Is the tonearm available separately? Although no component is perfect I think that there is something fundamentally right in linear tracking tonearms that can't be reached in pivot tonearms.
+1 I love good writing and this is you at your (so far) very best Ked. Awesome read and a lesson in authenticity. Looking forwards to you getting out more and being regularly back on the road again testing gear and the owners and eating in very fine style.This is my favourite article you have ever done, Ked. You won’t get this level of insight and experience across broad range of global systems coupled to educational setup advice anywhere on the web. Bravo.
