Vintage 40-50's - Zeiss, EMT, Vitavox

Hello.

I had been listening old blues and jazz (and symphonic music too). For stereo recordings and big band I use the Zeiss.
For mono recordings - old Vitavox and Shindo 300B.

1. System 1 (for stereo and big band)
EMT-930 (ortofon rma-229, ortofon rmg-309), DAC - Audio Note DAC5 Signature
Shindo Masseto + Zeiss Dominar L (1953) + ZEISS IKOVOX D (1953)

Have you ever compared the EMT mono cart to Miyajima zero?
Yes, they have different sound.
EMT is an old ortofon, the sound is very dense and powerful. But on frequencies up to 15.000. Therefore, on EMT it is good to listen to old mono vinyl (up to the 60's). Also, good old vinyl sounds on the SPU's ortofon.
Miyajima zero can be compared with modern (from 2000's) EMT or modern mono Ortofon. And on a new or from the 90's vinyl. Here it sounds good. But I love the old vinyl and the old sound. It is more sincere.

Hi, did you hear the new EMT mono, TMD 25, on old mono classical records? How does it compare to the OFD?
