It is the first track on the album called Fragment! Performed by the swedish jazzelite Arne Domnerus ( cl ), Egil Johansen ( dr ), Georg Riedl ( b ), and Bengt Hallberg ( p ).
You know some of them from Jazz at the Pawnshop but there are more excellent albums and they are all well recorded! Some also with the eminent guitarist Rune Gustafsson.

One more of Per’s videos. EMT 927, DaVa reference, Nat magnetic, Nord Class D amp, marten speakers

Bonzo, could you please spezify what preamp we are listening in this video? Underneath the EMT is this a Shindo which seems to be engaged because the green lamp is glowing? What model is this and do we listen to it? Just asking because this record sounds so alive on the drums. Thank you!

This video is quite revealing about the sound of the system. It’s very difficult to suss out the contribution of the cartridge. Do you have other recordings of similar music with this cartridge in different contexts for comparison?

Not surprised. I bet there has been a spike in orders following your recent report.

it was 6 to 8 already when I joined in. I would have helped the momentum, but Leif, followed by Bill and others got it to 6 to 8. When Mike joined the queue was 4 months. Once the people who have ordered receive these, set up, and their friends get to hear, it will spike. I understand that 100 are already in the market over the last two years.

No but there are 3 of Per’s videos on this thread and Leif’s on my channel.

thing is with EMT usually the nuance is lower. The
video does not have that issue. And he is using the internal phono and a class D amp.

Ever since I first heard it on a TD 124 next to a continuum with an etsuro gold and heard the level of nuance, I have been wanting to hear it on a 927, so will visit him at some point
