    Top Wing Seiryu arrives at Believe High Fidelity

    Sorry have a very busy week and weekend. @bazelio I will make the inquiry for you, but it would just make sense to just try one out. FYI: The Top Wing Blue Dragon is a low inductance cartridge not a high one as you have suggested.

    Top Wing Seiryu arrives at Believe High Fidelity

    We have received a sensational endorsement from Benno the head designer of Gamut/Raidho Loudspeakers. Benno has decided to standardize on Top Wing Seiryu "Blue Dragon" after using it for his playback at Munich High End. So any new speaker designs or demonstrations at the main office will be...

    Etsuro Urushi Cobalt Blue Review by Enjoy The Music

    2nd Review this month from Etsuro Urushi. This time the Cobalt Blue from Herb Reichert on page 53 of Gramophone Dreams. Buy the magazine and enjoy the read. " the Etsuro Urushi, the EMIA transformer presented a festival of subtle dynamic inflections and transient nuance I had never...

    Alsyvox planars...prepare to sell your Magico's, YG's, Wilson's, Cessaro's. Maggie's, and all others!!

    Sorry Bruce no apologies for Dr K. However, there are some areas I can clear up so this can move on: 1) Dr K stated there were speakers for sale on Audiogon and Audiomart. He did not mention they were his until Bonzo brought it up. He could have very easily said this and even added he was...

    Well then I suggest that when you make inquires that you don;t include in the email "I am with Bob Carver". I did speak to Bob, hence the reason I know you have no affiliation with his company even though you introduce yourself as such. I don't need to "be careful" about anything. A simple...

    Alsyvox planars...prepare to sell your Magico's, YG's, Wilson's, Cessaro's. Maggie's, and all others!!

    When you solicit yourself as a Bob Carver employee and ask for accommodation prices (no doubt used the same tactic to get the speakers) and you are not affiliated with them in any way I not sure what other label you would prefer to be used instead Mike.

    Well if the high inductance is the basis for the comparison and you are not expecting them to sound the same then what it the objective result that you are interested in getting out of the comparison?

    On the market for less than a year and already falling into the selling to non dealers and then used market. This really irks me as I know some of the brands that are carrying Alsyvox like Dr Vinyl are legitimate dealers and not black market con artists out for a discount or profit pretending...

    Top Wing Seiryu arrives at Believe High Fidelity

    While I can't argue the logic in your critique of keeping that information from the public, I can say that it is not as much of a challenge as you are suggesting. As a example we did have a Hyperion at RMAF that Peter installed for Joshua Miles in hopes that he would use it. Without giving my...

    Full Limited Edition Aries Cerat System Build and World Exclusive LEGEND Series!

    Quick update: Been to Billys system a few times over the past several weeks to work on dialing it all in. Somehow lost my proprietary cable for my mic so I haven't been able to do any recordings outside of the occasional FB video. Over the course of the installation addressed a number of a...

    Oh my, oh my - Aries Cerat Helene DAC

    I think I didn't extrapolate the point of it being optional. If you purchased the Helene and the Genus as a combo for a 2 channel system it is already reference level, but if you at some point added a pair of cans you would have one, if not, the best headphone setup out there as a compliment to...

    Top Wing Seiryu arrives at Believe High Fidelity

    Good to hear. Cantilevers and their performance is relative to the design and from my own curiosity it isn't that it couldn't be better but the results were marginal without going to diamond and would increase an already pricey cartridge for both initial cost and replacement cost. From the...

    Top Wing Seiryu arrives at Believe High Fidelity

    You should be ok. Kuzma 4 point is moderate mass and since Top Wing isn't a very high compliance cart it should be ok. Now way to confirm 100%, but I am willing to be it would work just fine

    Saw your question on the other Top Wing thread, but it was deleted before I could reply Top Wing is a high compliance cartridge, but it doesn't have a published specification.

    Setup went very well and we listened to music well into the evening. I didn't have any desire to record or snap quality photos because I just wanted to listen. It is every bit as good as you can imagine and a lot more. I am floored

    Far as I can tell CAW is a new offering from Acoustic Fields so I don't imagine that any are out there to demo.
