Man this is one cracken cartridge out of the box and like allot of people have mentioned , this cart. boogies .

I have gone thru the full line of Dynavectors up to the DV1s excluding the TE Kaitora Rua .

Thank you

It was, of course, the same with the Troika, for which I believe the Aro was originally designed. Once the leads are appropriately connected and folded neatly behind the cartridge body, there shouldn't be any further issue. Don't give up as I'm sure it will be worth the effort in the end. IIRC Red Kite, formerly of this forum, uses a Kandid / Aro combination in a very high spec LP12.



What happened to Debs ?

Red Kite had decided to leave the forum for reasons of her own. In accordance to the app.php/Rules#rules bullet point 6 no further discussion can be entertained.

Thank you both .

Sounded great out of the box and after about 10 or so hours taken a little dip which is normal .

Much nicer having a lighter cart on the Aro for manual lifting .

DV1s was very heavy.

I'd re-think that Chris when the Krystal wears out.

It's all marginal gains and I wonder is that marginal gain compared with the Krystal really worth an extra £2k? Especially for a 'consumable' item. But then if you can justify £2k for a mains lead...

Go on Chris; you know you want to!
