    Very nice. Haven't listened to a Lyra for a while. Too engrossed with my Benz LP-S

    Re: Thales Tonearm

    @byrdparis: I have looked for your review of the Simplicity II in HIFIMUSIC.CO.IL. Unfortunately I am not able to read it because of the used language. Is there any other source in the internet with an English version of your review?

    Re: Thales Tonearm

    Another question: Is it worth to think about an alternative tonearm cable. I have chosen the original Thales direct wiring tonearm cable. I use the following other gear:

    - Tom Evans Preamp
    - Vitus Audio SIA-025 + SS-025
    - Gauder Berlina RC 8

    Thank´s in advance for your feed back.

    There is nothing wrong with the Thales tonearm cable. I preferred my Nordost Valhalla. If you heard the tonearm with the Thales cable, you already know how it sounds.

    Are you buying the Thales turntable or ??

    Thank´s XV-1 for your fast and clear reply. I heard the tonearm without the direct wiring version and what I heard I liked very much. With the direct wiring cable version I think it will be one step forward. Your answer in any case is helping me to bring down my update fever. :-)

    PS: Yes, I ordered the Simplicity II with the TT Compact II and the EMT JSD S75. Only the Preamp isn´t fixed finally. In the test scenario at my home I listened to the Tom Evans GroovePlus SRX mkII and it sounded very well and harmonized perfectly with the Thales/EMT-combination. Nevertheless I want to audition the big brother, the Mastergroove in addition.

    Yes, the direct wiring should be a little better. with tonearm cables, you could be testing and spending money forever for small differences. the tonearm makse the largest difference imo.

    enjoy your new table - it will be awesome.
