Well it’s more of a right to say no, if I don’t like it with the Urika - but I can’t see that happening.

In fact I’m more intrigued to hear it in a Javelin is that is practicable, but that might need to wait for another day.
Chris,
Have you been away on holiday ?

Will be good to hear what your ears tell you when you get over to Peter's to give it the final listen so to speak ......... :D

Chris,
I'm giving the Kleos SL some serious consideration.
Will be interested in your thoughts on it?

I’ll let you know - it seems a long time since I auditioned it, but it was an easy decision back then.

The Krystal has a new home to go to as well :smt023

I’m sure you’ll let us know how you get on Chris :) I’m very happy with my Kleos SL six weeks in. A word of caution: don’t expect the new cart to sound great straight out of the box. Mine initially sounded thin and flat to the point I wondered if I’d made a mistake. It was noticeably better after a couple of hours, and is continuing to improve (according to the UK distributor it needs 100 hours + to reach its best).

100 hours of use before it sounds any good :roll:
Akiva and Kandid and my mates Atlas took less time than that.

My Kandid was scorching straight out of the box. :shock:
All this burning in guff just seems like getting used to it. :roll:

So how does the Lyra Kleos SL sound compared to the Kandid?
