According to this, the cartridge range for the Type 8 is 2-8 grams, but I believe the 8C can accommodate heavier cartridges due to its split counterweight.
I'm seeking suggestions for a cartridge to complement my newly acquired Breuer. Budget is up to $6K, but I have a little flexibility. I already have a XV1-t on a Schroeder CB, so am seeking a different sound. I listen to a lot of jazz, pop, rock, electronica and singer-songwriter. Thanks!
I own an older pair of Jeffrey Jackson's Experience Music Type 50 monos, which I believe are somewhat similar to the Emia Type 50's. I use them to drive my 3-way horns that are approximately 107db efficient. I love them. In fact, someday I may inquire about upgrading to silver transformers.
When you find such an amp, please let me know. I currently use Type 50 SET monos, which maybe put out 2 watts, on my 105db horns in a 30 x 18 x 9.5 room. Sounds great, but I'm interested in trying an amp with a bit more headroom.
Agree, Jeffrey's system is the finest I've ever heard and not by a small margin.
Next best was a pair of Wilson Wamms bi-amped with 2 Naim 500s in a large loft in Brooklyn. At the time, I thought it was a strange combination, but boy did it sound incredible.
I also really enjoyed my ATC 50s...
I plan on buying an inexpensive laptop for the AnalogMagik software on Black Friday. I have been looking at the Lenovo Ideapad 130s, which is on sale for $99. Does anyone know what the minimum system requirements are? Thanks!
