  1. I do mean tuning of resistance to cartridge spec as against gain adjustment. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  2. So in your opinion, the matching of resistance is folly? I was already aware that capacitance matching had little effect.
  3. Is there a generally accepted effect on sound quality from increasing or decreasing the input resistance on a phono stage? For example, if a cartridge should see greater than 100 ohms, would the sound generally be brighter as the resistance level is increased?
  4. The Wam Jazz, Wam Jazz Funk and Wam Spiritual Jazz on Spotify contain some fantastic music. https://open.spotify.com/user/oldius/playlist/7AQDI6lqaA9atceNbX7MFP Wam Jazz https://open.spotify.com/user/oldius/playlist/3z0UMYdDygG3eOm98ZggFk Wam Spiritual Jazz https://open.spotify.com/user/oldius/playlist/51eLnxOMTNvQTWIj7HRmrt Wam Jazz Funk If you wish to add tracks, just follow the playlist and then 'click and drag' your own favourites in to it.
  5. What amp are you using Phil?
  6. Despite the purchase price of my current system being significantly lower than previous systems, this is as happy as I have been with my kit and it is ALL vintage Japanese in my main system. Bought at original RRP, it would have been hideously expensive though which shows what value there is in much of the vintage Japanese high end hifi market.

  8. I remember upgrading to a Rega Elicit amp from a Rega Brio with my Royd Minstrels. Both amps were well within spec for the speakers but the Elicit brought huge improvements and showed me the value of good amplification. The biggest improvements subsequently were enforced by house moves and speaker changes but that change of amplifier sticks in the memory. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

  13. That's very kind thank you. The Lentek won't replace my Nakamichi but it is a superb integrated. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
