“I thought it was about time I dropped you a few comments on my new (Well Tempered) Amadeus. The best way I can describe it is stunning! I’ve got a huge lift in performance. And the sound…. tight and agile would be top of the list. Also clear, lively, much more space between instruments, solid deep bass, detail, delicacy etc. So thanks for encouraging me down this line – I can see its going to be a lifelong companion.”

“Hi John and Carolyn, Thought it was about time I dropped you a few comments on my new (Well Tempered) Amadeus. The best way I can describe it is stunning! I had thought that my Linn Basik was fine for the bit that turns the record around, and cartridge and electronics were the key to reproduction from there. I’ve had that view totally overturned – the difference is huge, and much more than the difference between any of the different cartridges used in the test listen. So with no change in any other component I’ve got a huge lift in performance. And the sound…. tight and agile would be top of the list. Also clear, lively, much more space between instruments, solid deep bass, detail, delicacy etc etc. Forget the idea that vinyl is all about warmth and sweetness – its got that, but also now makes CDs sound flat and slow by comparison! So thanks for encouraging me down this line – I can see its going to be a lifelong companion.” Murray
