Classic ...."Fully Optioned"

Postby wooferocau » Fri Sep 30, 2016 6:45 pm

Some pics of my Classic with all the options...

Classic 1 Walnut.
VTA Mod and new pivot
3D Arms.. Old style and new style.
Periphery Ring
Stillpoints LP1
Stillpoints Ultra 5 Footers
Lyra "Delos" and Lyra "Kleos" Carts.
Siltech Classic Anniversary Phono Cables.

Just had a chance to compare the "Old" Classic to a new Prime....people are stating that the Prime "Blows" away the Classic ???? form our listening this certainly was NOT the case!! Changing the arms form the Classic to the Prime using the same carts...none of use could tell any difference...a couple of friends even thought the Classic sounded better!!

I have a Delos and have often wondered about the Kleos. Can you tell me what more you get with the Kleos?

Hi Tom,

I definitely wouldn't say you get "more" from the Kleos...just a different sound.

The Delos is more lively/brighter with less midrange than the Kleos. The Kleos has a much sweeter midrange and an extended bottom end.
I change the carts/arms depending on what i am listening to.

Paul.

Now that's what I call a "sweet spot"! Next move is up the VPI line I suppose, huh?
