New Prime Signature

Postby Pianist » Wed Nov 01, 2017 9:22 pm

My Prime Signature with an Ortofon Cadenza Bronze cartridge arrived today. I simply cannot adequately describe the improvement over my Scout 1.1/Ortofon 2M Black! Everything that could possibly be better, is! Deeper/wheightier bass, smoother/more detailed highs, more open mids, far wider/deeper soundstage—you name it. And as a special bonus, less surface noise.

I want to thank Seth at SoundstageDirect for his 5-star service and Jay for the great setup.

Very nice, I must admit that I'm torn between the gloss black and the rosewood finish....that would be a nice problem to have.

I was torn, too, but the upcharge for the rosewood took a big chunk out of the cost of the cartridge, so in the end that's what I went for!

Pianist,

Congratulations on your new Prime Signature, and the strength to keep your eyes on the prize of the "PS" with Cadenza Bronze, because I'm sure you must have heard the tempting whispers of the "Siren" of the Rosewood Prime Signature whispering your name many nights.
Enjoy your table and "Let the music play!!!!"
