    Hi Robert,

    the turntables are different, with different phonostage and cartridge.
    The 1210 is connected to the internal phonostage of Burmester 011 and has a Lyra Delos, while the Empire/Benz 698 is connected to the Rega IOS and has a Transfiguration Spirit. The last turntable also need a new belt and motor grommets, and needs a calibration of springs. So it's not in its best conditions at the moment.

    The Technics sounds very fast and detailed, very balanced without been dry or harsh.
    The other is a bit less precise extremes of the audio band but have warmer and more emphasized medium range, less hifi but a pleasure to the ear.

    So I am so happy to have 2 turntables that sound so different, one is very hi-fi, while the other is very tasty :-D

    In this regard the new bases in panzerholz have contributed on both turntables to a better focus / scene and have improved the speed of response to transients

    Hey eu_73
    Thanks for this post I enjoyed it - really interesting mix of gear, that I cannot imagine the sound it has in my head. But it must be great I would think!

    Hello Adrian,
    thank you.
    Many people think that Burmester has a hyper-detailed sound and turns to cold tones, probably because of the appearance of the machines with many chrome parts.
    My set up is very neutral, just a bit shifted on the warm side. The sound is detailed, it just flows like water - naturally without ever having the impression of any bottleneck - and is extended both in the high range and in the low range, even with the physical limits imposed by the B25 loudspeakers.
    The voices are in my opinion very very beautiful, in particular the male ones that appear almost real.

    Hey Eugenio.

    Its good that you're happy with your system at the moment and don't need to change anything
    Iv'e got an ageing Marantz CD72 SE and am thinking of , in the future combining CD and DVD as you have with the DVD A1
    how do you find it using it as your CD replay ?

    Hi Adrian,

    my DVD A1 has been modified and has a new output stage, with a dedicated power supply.
    But also withoud midification I find it is a very good cd player, with a bonus: you can use it as dac because there are 2 digital input.
    For thr front channel it uses 2 Burr Brown 1704 in parallel per channel, and I love this converter, in my opinion one of the best ever made.
    While if you want to use it as dvd player I think it is too old, it doesn't have any hdmi output but only scart or rgb. So not the better choice with a recent television...

    A TV anywhere near the music centre (not even the same room, ideally) is a complete no no.
    My stuff -

    Analogue: Technics SL-7 / EPC-P202C
    For when there's no Analogue: Doge 6 CDP
    To discover loads of new music: Spotify via Laptop into Xiang Sheng DAC-01A
    Make music louder: Quad 34 pre, Nirvana Electronic Works A60, 60W / Ch Class A power
    Music boxes: Heco Celan 300
    Cleaning duties: Okki Nokki 2

    Y'know, sometimes, Satan, come as a man of peace.
