Proper SUT/Cartridge pairing is absolutely essential. I have had a chance to use 7 different SUT's (Cinnemag, Sowter, Lundahl, Hommage, Altec, Silk, Hashimoto) and preferred the Hashimoto with my Koetsu Onyx. The SUT in the Shindo preamps and the Hommage will work with a variety of cartridges but are clearly optimised for SPU type cartridges. Will have a Garrard 301 up shortly so am eager to hear how my new Ortofon SPU classic will sound tapped directly into the VR preamp.
Speakers: Tonian classic 12 (PHY driver) and Hawthorn Audio Trios (Open Baffle). Analog Source: Nottingham Ana-log, Garrard 301. Tonearms: SME 312S, SME M2-12R, Nottingham Unipivot. Cartridge: Koetsu Onyx, Lyra Helikon Mono, Ortofon SPU Classic. Digital Source: Eastern Electric Dac +. Electronics: Shindo Vosne Romane Preamp, 45,2A3,300B,F2a,GM70 SET amps, Atma-sphere S30 OTL, Dynaco ST-70, Shindo Haut-Brion
