So, when I chose to go the Odyssey route it was based on reputation, my understanding of the "Odyssey Sound" and that he makes and sells a complete system that he brings to shows.
As I have little to zero experience with high end gear, I wanted to make sure I achieved synergy with the components I choose. So in that vain, it has been my desire to upgrade from my current Phonostage (Lounge LCR MKIII) to the Suspiro. I have zero doubt the Suspiro is very good BTW.
What I'd like to have happen in this thread are comparisons of the Suspiro vs other phono stages and general thoughts and impressions. I was excited to read Fremer's review but it seems to have never actually happened. Other pro reviews are scarce to say the least.
Admittedly, I am ignorant as to what a $2000 phono stage does better than a $300 phono stage, and I'm in no way saying it isn't better, just that I am curious as to how much better it can be. Again, this is ignorance on my part.
