Cadenza Black has finally arrived. Unfortunately, won't get around to mounting/listening until cooler weather arrives.

The projects I am working on have been delayed again and again, when I get them done I look forward to reassembling my TT and one again enjoying the ZYX Omega and fine tuning phase 2 of my speed controller.

In this "time of coronavirus" have time to 'play', so have gone thru and taken a pic of my cartridges. In order of precedence........ Lyra Kleos, Ortofon Cadenza Black, Ortofon Kontrapunkt-b (retipped), AT33R (Japan only reference MC), AT150Ti and AT-MONO3/LP mono MC (new addition this week - highly recommended at the $170 price.

Thank you.
Decided a few years ago that I needed to move from a TA with a fixed headshell to one with a universal mount. Too much fun rolling cartridges to have a fixed headshell. They all have enough of their own sound signature that is most enjoyable to listen to one and then listen to another a short time later. I may put my Dual 701 back into the system for MM use. The MCs are all a real "cut above" the MM and not sure it is worth the time/effort to bother with the AT150Ti. Besides, I want to give a try to a Kiseki Purple Heart (weird name) or an Ortofon A-90/95/Anna or a .................?
