Glad you like it! A good turntable as a front end is a great investment for both your ears and your soul!

I'm glad to say that 3 others have taken me up on the Aja transfer and hopefully they will be reporting back.

Have a great and safe NYE!

I so much want to try my Ruby 3 on this table. I keep going back and forth from my TD850/Audiomods series 4/ Benz Ruby 3 to this table/arm/cartridge combination and I'm floored on how great the Ruby 3 is. The Ruby 3 is maybe the best investment I've made in audio and I'm sure it would sound killer on this rig, too.

I've recently did a transfer from my 850/Ruby and I'm going to send it out to those that have received the Glider comp. As good as the Glider is the Ruby 3 shows you what an extra 2000 can get you.

Right now I'm spinning Paul Simon's, "Songs from the Capeman" on the TD 150/Ebony-Benz Glider .9 and it sounds really good; creamy smooth, natural timbres and full bodied. Loaded at 47k, so this would work with many MM boards that supply enough gain.

Well, I guess I'm just rambling. Back to listening...........

I'm not sure my ears will discern the difference, but looking forward to hearing the Ruby 3, especially since the cartridge costs about what I probably paid for my entire He-Man rig!

I bought a table from raymonda and he packs and ships top notch. Any support you need after, he over does what is expected of a seller.
No Mics
Clamps
Cables
No Preamp
Recorders

I have now finalized the set up and build. I fabricated and installed carbon fiber spacers for the arm board. After balancing and adjusting the suspension I put the Dire Striats, "On Ever Street". The table rocks, is very dynamic and revealing in a complimentary way. If I sell my Schoeps I can keep this table. Buy my Schoeps, please!

Aja files sent from Thorens TD850/Origin Live/Audiomods Series 4/AcousTech Ph1P with op amp upgrade/Benz Ruby 3/Grace V3 Oadie Bros mod. recorded at 88.2/24

I'm listening to it on my office system: PeachTree iDecco/ Fiio X3 and modded Celestion SL6S. Sounds nice!

Enjoy!

By jove - you're right!  It's subtle, but there's even more "depth" and richness to the music with the Benz Ruby.  I was doing A/B comparison and the overall effect was that I was more drawn into the music with the Ruby, than the Benz Micro(?).  Nice.  Thanks Ray!

You pay for that extra 5-7% but it is worth it and addicting!
