Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

Interesting, thanks.

Considering the price, I guess I'll give it a try with the Slipsik 7.

May you send me via pm the torque setting etc.?

Thanks

Re: Torqued equipment...

The suggested Sturtevant Richmont CAL 36/4 seems to be unattainable in Italy.

Can someone suggests a similar alternative, including the kit?

Thanks

To me (well reproduced) music is important for emotions.

I will be returning it. I recommended the G109 with easy closed headphones and agree: a Grado with the G109 is not a ...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Maybe my comment was unclear. :-) I like the Rega for what it does but do find the Sondek clearly better indeed. Best L42 album is ""The Pursuit of Accidents" M. Thank you Matteo. They are so cheap that I will try to find them tomorrow. Also their first album ("Level 42", 1981) is very good IMHO. M.

Re: Slipsik 7

After a couple of months and more than 100 hours I can confirm that the Slipsik 7 is a step forward the Slipsik 6 and the upgrade worths every penny. There is more of everything, more musical, more coherent at low volume, more bass extension. In particular, the bass is spectacular, my mod. 109 seems...
