RE: Please detail how the Keel is superior

I had a short post on April 20, 2007 after attending a extended session at the Gifted Listener Audio Salon in Virginia the night before. The opinions of all in attendance were that the upgrades were superior in every way, PRAT, detail, midrange, bass, dynamics, etc. and the differences were obvious to everyone in attendance. Based on what I was told about 70 percent of this improvement was due to the Keel upgrade and about 30 percent was due to the SE upgrade, but we only had the fully upgrade table and the stock table. Everything else was the same. I know that the Linn folks have been conducting worldwide demonstrations of their upgrades so perhaps a Google search may find other opinions. My chief objection to the upgrades is the cost but I would probably spend $3K for a permanent upgrade to my table before I spent $1K for a cartridge. I haven't been able to convince myself to spend that much on something that is fragile and fleeting, but others have. I have owned a Linn table for over 20 years so I feel I have gotten great value from my investment.
