....when I was able to talk to Harry Weisfeld at an audio event. He said that for the JPW arm, the best match among moving coils are the Ortofons and the Lyras.
The most troublesome are the Denons, which don't give good results in his arm. Unfortunately, the Hana apparently has about the same compliance as the Denons.
and have an original Sumiko Celebration (since re-tipped via Soundsmith) and am thinking of a new cartridge. Have been considering a Soundsmith Zephyr Star but now that Lyra has been mentioned: Any opinions of Soundsmith vs Lyra for the same bucks?
The whole problem with the world is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.
...at the meeting where I spent some time gabbing with Harry in the kitchen, he brought and played a Lyra Atlas, the $13,000 top-of-the-line Lyra cartridge. It is definitely the best cartridge I have ever heard at any price, but you probably suspected that.
