    congrats -- heard the signature gold a few days ago and maybe it was the new mofi dire straits 45rpm pressing that were playing, but... wow!!!!! absolutely gripping listening experience.

    any thoughts on the eminent Ex? it was described as 85% of the signature gold.

    Re: My Sonic Labs Cartridges

    Congrats on acquiring the MSL line. It's good to see the products from Matsudaira San getting the recognition they deserve.
    I've been using and very much enjoying a Ultra Eminent EX.
    You don't know what you're missing until you hear what a very low impedance cart can dig up out of your favorite grooves.

    Re: My Sonic Labs Cartridges

    Mike, congrats on another great brand to enhance your already impressive line card. I've been enjoying the Eminent GL off and on for a few years and its presently in the top 5 fav carts in my quiver.

    Re: My Sonic Labs Cartridges

    Mike, You'll see a substantial difference for the positive after about 50hrs of play. It really begins to shine after that.
    Look forward to further impressions and comments from you.
