The magic combination. Goldbug Briar cartridge on Victor deck, Shindo Massetto preamp and the Mondo Ongaku copy. Tannoy 15″ Reds in Shindo made Autograph cabinets. For CD and SACD the high end Marantz.
For your delectation a pair of Lowthers in Alfredo cabinets.
Listening on Sunday reinforced my impressions of the Shindo boxes (also with Reds): Excellent transparency with superb dynamic range. The amp uses KT66 valves, whether or not this is the reason, this pair of Autographs had a much brighter and clearer top end than I’ve come to expect of Tannoy Reds.
