The Lyra Etna is also an attractive proposition - with a Lyra cartridge trade in 8)
Currently Cymbiosis LP12 Woodsong Wenge, Klimax Radikal/Chord Sarum T, Keel/A, Khan, Tranquility, Urika/Chord SSA, Aro, sKale, Lyra Kleos SL - Sondek owner since 1982 - the rest is Naim, Chord and Kudos 8)

I would rather have a Kandid than a Etna.
They are to close on SQ and VFM.
Chris,
Are you trying to sell your old Delos?
Lyra's and DV's go up in price very soon in the UK.

You get what you pay for.
Its a outstanding sounding cartridge. :smt023
It needs a quality tonearm like a Linn Ekos SE/SE1 to do it justice.
The old naim wibble wobble aro's are a waste of time. :smt018 :D

Not at all.
Its a cause and effect how the arm works.
Its one of the reasons Naim stopped making it instead of just whacking the price up and keep making the thing. :smt018

High performance cars often use more fuel and are harder on tyres than family runabouts :wink:
