    Mike L is partly why I moved from point source to large speakers. Mike, Joe Pitman and a friend in VA with the live sound design altec all moved me to large drivers.

    Re: Edís System

    ed -- just thought i would check back now that you have had more time with the kuzma -- defintiely a top-notch set-up.

    stepping back from analytical listening, i am curious how you would compare the listening experience in terms of engagement, enjoyment and general fun of the kuzma to the u-turn? and, then maybe the same comparison to your digital source?

    just trying to "right-size" my 2020 analog project. kuzma has been at the top of my list; however, other's experience with the u-turn really has me interested: if it has all the fun factor of vinyl and is just as engaging... well then, hmmmm.

    Re: Edís System

    I doubt Ed ia swearing off digital. I was playing 15 ips tape all day yesterday. At the end of the day I put on some digital for new content and it honestly was a moment of Ahhh. The sound is damb good coming from my digital. The tape definitly has a sound. And it's great, but in no way would I trade one for the other. I use both as my mood request.

    The U Turn was a great table but it benefited with use of the Boulder external phono, Stillpoint Ultra SS mechanical isolation resting on a HRS M3X platform and a set of Audioquest something cables using Boulders XLR adapters. It also has a few versions of Ortofon MM cartridges.

    Now much of that may of been excess, more so with the cost, but it showed the table was no slouch, especially with its solid Walnut table. If this is new for you, itís a great place to start, I really enjoyed it.

    The Kuzma Stabi R weight 80 lbs, cut from a block of billet, and is a belt drive like the U Turn. The 4point arm and MC cartridge all work in harmony, and things really are now starting to open up nicely. This thing really is a musical platform, and truly happy to have this in place.

    The Stabi S is no slouch either and at a reduced price point, using the same platter and pieced with a 4point you are dialed, and I can help you here.

    I find myself listening more to my albums, than my digital. I do find it very easy to tell the difference between the two, and there is a for sure sweetness listening to albums. In reference to digital, the Brinkmann Nyquist MK II is not going anywhere soon, it really does add a touch or analog with its Telefunken NOS 1960ís television tubes.

    Both have been a ton of work and expense but in I have zero regrets and the music comes through in spades.

    Mike Lavigne introduced me to what tape can be, and now KingRex, Rex just got a R2R and is making me look at getting into this portion of listening, I want to cry Ďcause I thought I would settle in with what I have and listen for a while.

    Re: Edís System

    thanks ed -- sounds like you are really enjoying the rewards from all the time and effort put into your system.

    i was not so much looking to compare models or even price points, per se. rather, i was exploring the point where the character, fun and engagement of vinyl was attained. your and others' experience with the u-turn certainly seemed to result in toe-tapping and similes all around. so, really just musing about where one could declare mission accomplished.

    secondarily, i was also interested to explore the point where one's analog source became the go-to format versus one's digital source -- convenience and ease of use notwithstanding. sounds like that point is no longer even in the same zip-code for you.

    congrats on a tremendous system -- enjoy!!

    Character, fun and engagement was attained upon opening the box and playing the first album, both turntables did that - too me itís the experience, and sound that a turn table adds.

    While Iím nudging my time towards vinyl it is to add hours on the setup, it turned a corner last week opening up nicely, and supposedly has many hours to go.

    For clarity, having both options is nirvana, especially knowing the importance of source in materials, thatís the key in all of this.
