    When switching to Benz everything seems to be more polite, slower pace , you donít sit on the edge of the chair anymore , but itís just an illusion , it kicks when is needed and the best think about is the way it presents voices ,I think stereophony is on higher level as well .Benz is a story teller while Zyx seems to be a showman.Not much difference soundwise between Wood SL an Ace SL , all above IMO obviously.
    That's really interesting. Looks like I'm going to have to try and loan a Benz Ace or similar. I'd find it difficult bro live without the pure atmosphere the ZYX is capable of. So anything that comes after it will have to be superb.

    A little above budget, I could sell the NOS Denon 103Pro I have here for £400 if that is of interest. Otherwise it is going on ebay tonight.

    I have tried that but my Chromecast Audio into a Chord 2Qute sounds better.

    Im not selling but I had an Ittock on a Rock once and a cartridge that was great with it was an AT32. So I suspect the Audio Technica AT33PTG would be a good match. Its a good cart anyway and not hard to find.

    The OC9 Mk2 would do you.
