SYRINX: The PU2; any good?

Zstereo write: The tale begins at the end of the nineteen seventies, with the arrival of Linn’s Ittok LVII tonearm. It put the cat amongst the pigeons in an analogue landscape dominated by the SME 3009S2, which appeared on virtually every turntable motor unit at the time. There was also the Grace G707, which had been Linn’s tube […]

MICHELL ENGINEERING: Electo amps, Pink Triangle Anniversary and more

My Stello DA100 DAC and ANT Cora 3T LTD arrived here several weeks ago and I’m very well pleased. I’ve also had exceptional help from Martin Logan in guiding me through the refurbishment of my Arius speakers, supplying new stators and condensers and constant emails back and forth.  So now to my need for further […]

MICHELL ENGINEERING: TecnoDec (RB250 Tonearm / Denon DL103 Cartridge) test review

“Its neutral balance is good for keeping the various elements consistent with one another and it makes a clear case for itself next to a more affordable deck like the Rega P3-24, thanks to a decent grasp of timing. Some will prefer a warmer sound, perhaps, but that’s a matter of cartridge choice and while […]
