    a $4500 cartridge is not "breaking the bank"

    10-4 on that. I'm just glad some people out there can afford the high end, its all relative just like cars, you can buy a basic model or you can move up the line in the same model. PS. Per your choices in the product list, Since I've been tinkering with Flamenco guitar since the early 80's, Friday Night In San Francisco - John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, and Paco De Lucia is indeed well made. My wife ordered the 45 months ago during my recovery, and it is a step above the 33.

    Was anyone counting? I would guess Audience had the most products on the list, interesting because I have always found there to be a company characteristic of somewhat "dark" sound, not especially appealing to me (but perhaps more to others, depending on their systems and sonic preferences). Pass Labs is probably second, and it's no surprise that I am a fan of their products.

    LOL. Perhaps you should go back and reread what I said. The point seems to have eluded you.

    I'd love to try those AGD Audion amps in my system. Sadly no UK distributor.
