I lived with the Kuzma Stabi Reference/Triplanar VII/Benz LP-S and Kuzma XL4/Triplanar VII/LP-S combination for years. Triplanar is a great tonearm, no doubt about that but 4Point is simply in a different league - on a much higher level. Triplanar can not touch 4Point in ANY sonic (or any other) department! OK, you may consider it more attractive if you will
but in comparison to 4Point it sounds obsolete, slow and thin and no, 4Point is does not sound "in your face" per se
. If a recording is in your face, well, 4Point will reveal that. It has much less character than Triplanar. Please read Fremer's review in Stereophile. I agree with everything he said.
