My equipment is as follows:
1.Well Tempered Lab's, Classic, made in the 90's, fittered with Zu Audio, up graded Denon 103 cartridge!!
2.Vacuum State Audio JLTI phono stage, "solid Stage", with RCA loading Plugs, at rear, I'm using 100ohms plugs!!
3. Weston Audio Topaz, intergrated tube amp, 35 WPC, push pull class A
4. Zu Audio, soul speakers
I'm very happy with the sound, beats anything, that I've owned, since owning any audio gear, since the age of 14!!
So whats the problem??
Well My friends, I'm 90%, happy, but some of my favorite, albums, sound a bit harsh!!, I think I'm a bit critical, as I'm hearing shuttle things, that were there there, but were part of the colour, of the recording, but now, it has space around the notes, at the expense of brightness!!, I just want to tame it a bit, and still hear the above!!
I have changed the cartridge, loading, from 100ohm, to 250ohm, but was to bright, I think to me that maybe the Zu/Denon, may be the problem, as this is a heavy, cartridge, may be not suitable for the Well Tempered Arm, I was told it would be a good match, but now I'm not sure, I could maybe, load the cartridge, down to say 40, or 50 ohms!!
Hope someone can help
