    Do you find the supertweeters make much of a difference?

    Really a beautiful system you have there, congrats! Would love to see pic of the listening room also.

    Have you been faithful to Koetsu for longer period of time or used something else also? If you would like to say a word of two about the differencies of the SUTs that would be interesting subject..

    The Head Sut is a lovely item. I own one and while I don't use it much, its one of those items I will never part with.

    Nice looking set up.

    Hi Mika many thanks for your kind comments. In terms of Koetsus I have Red, Black and Coral types I also use an SME 3012 Series 1(A) with an Audio Note IO and have a number of Ortofon SPUs & JS SUTs:




    Each cartridge and SUT has it's own limitations or perhaps a better way of putting it would be 'character'. I personally believe it impossible for any recording / Hi Fi to fully capture and reproduce 100% genuinely the sound of a live performance and as such I like to listen to recorded music which I can emotionally connect with and on a good day perhaps be swept up and taken away all but physically.
    In terms of what sounds like what my preferences seem to change with moods but I do consistently rather like the 301 with the 3012 series 1 paired with a Mono SPU via JS traffos. For me at least this combination seems magnetic.

    I also have a Thorens 124 MKII with Ortofon 309 which I rather like and is currently on loan to a friend
