Oi that’s my job, I’ll set the bloody union on you for that.
Indeed. It’s only marginal in the “not catching fire” stakes, rather than “but, it was the speaker’s fault”.
Got my Inca Tech back from my youngest daughter, so a 1980s system ensues
Systemdek II with a Linn Basik Plus and Cartridgeman Cart into the Inca Tech MM input and a pair of Heybrook HB2 (Mk1). Music flows.
Janet Kay 12" on the Systemdek.
Looking good Bob
Have you ever thought that you could sell all that crap you collect and buy summat decent?
At least I listen to it
Which Cartridgeman cart, and do you rate them?
It’s an early one, not sure which one I assume the original one (as I didn’t get a box or papers with it). It’s at least 15 years old.
I like it quite a lot, not as good as a Koetsu or such, but for the money into a MM stage, super cart. It’s not fussy about arms (it works really well on the Systemdek II and Linn BasikPlus). I am not a fan of cheap Linn arms, but the combo seems good. I took it to Geoff’s (Oldius) bake-off a month or so ago and it worked really well into my Primare 928 pre/powers with his JBL L4312B, in fact it sounded like a much more expensive TT.
Cheers, I have to say I like the Inca Tech Claymore a lot, great amp for less than £200. I have used it with the JBL L112s and that is a nice combo.
It has spent the last 3 years powering some Bose 901 Mk2 speakers.
Looking at the site, it is the Musicmaker MkIII, mine is the same as the pic below;
I have a mk2 that looks exactly the same.
I think they have all looked like that since the first Music Maker version, although the silver wired one now has a different finish on the metallic areas. They seem quite spendy for (essentially) a mm cart, but Roy Gregory really seemed to like the ones he’s reviewed over the years - as did others. It’s good to hear a less commercially motivated view (call me a cynic, he was there to sell magazines…)
It’s probably the best MM cart I have owned, along with the Supex SM100E and Grace F9E. Certainly a step above things like K9, P77, Nagoaka MP500 etc…
It’s not mm, it’s moving iron, it’s a grado with a fancy diamond.
I know I have a few Grado’s too.
Just being pedantic, missed the
My only gripe with the MM, is the grado gold should be pretty close on most vinyl at a lot less money.
Main issue is certain platters and turntables can make them hum.
