Steve Blinn Designs Digital Stylus Force Gauge 1/100 g...
Our Digital Stylus Gauge was developed after numerous conversations with our customers. Complaints were being registered regarding the inacuracy and the extremely fast battery drainage of a small digital stylus gauge that was being offered under various names by many different vendors. Also, high among the complaints, was the concern that any decent gauge was absurdly overpriced..Our gauge provides extremely precise and consistant readings and is accurate to 1/100th of a gram. It also offers superb battery life..We welcome you to make a direct, feature by feature comparison, between our new precision ProScale Digital Stylus Force Gauge, and a well known high end gauge that sells for $250.00 on various websites and at high end brick and mortar Hi-Fi establishments in the U.S. and around the world..We decided, just as we had with our equipment racks and amp stands, that we could make a heck of a lot more people happy if we bypassed the middle man and sold directly to the audiophile community (thereby cutting out about $100 of markup on the gauge). This would leave our customers with enough cash so they could pick up several of those super high quality audiophile recordings that they've been yearning for, but have been holding off buying..As you might be aware, our original gauge received rave reviews from professionals as well as tons of glowing feedback from audiophiles on Audiogon.Please click on the following link to read the review of our original gauge which appeared on the Polk Audio website. We include this strictly as a reference point for the quality and accuracy that our gauges have always represented. PLEASE CLICK HERE.Our new Digital Stylus Gauge offers significant improvements, even over our original gauge, in just about every area: A beautiful, non-magnetic, aluminum weighing surface.Accurate and repeatable readouts to 1/100th gramAutomatic recalibration to 0.00 grams every time the gauge is switched on.Only our gauge, comes with a small indentation in the measuring platform to eliminate any possibility of stylus slippage during the weighing process.A fully automatic shut-off feature which prevents accidental battery drainage.We include (Free of Charge) a 50 gram jeweler's calibration weight. You will have the ability, if you wish, to manually confirm that the calibration of your gauge is spot on.Crafted in the U.S.A. This is a bulletproof gauge..It measures the tracking force of your stylus right AT the surface height of the record, not above it as many gauges do. Taking the measurement anywhere higher than the record's surface will give readings that can be off by as much as a full gram, resulting in a severe compromise to your cartridge's setup, poor performance and possible damage to your records and your stylus. When you consider that most manufacturers specify that their cartridge's tracking force setting be in the 2 gram range...that represents a huge discrepancy!.The Steve Blinn Designs Digital Stylus Force Gauge allows you to bring out the very best that your records have to offer. It is extremely accurate and measures in 1/100th gram increments. It has an easy to read blue backlit digital display and it gives consistent and repeatable readouts. Each scale is tested for accuracy and is calibrated, using precision jeweler's weights, prior to shipment. .FREE SHIPPING anywhere within the continental U.S.(Just add $10 for shipping outside the continental U.S.).PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL STEVE (917) 361-4701 OR EMAIL us 7 DAYS A WEEK, we are always available to answer your questions.PLEASE CLICK HERE TO GO TO OUR WEBSITE where you can use the "contact us" page to send us an email.

ZYX Omega Fabulous...
Greetings from Chicago. ZYX Omega -- both the classic and Premium models in stock. Also demo models. Please check SORAsound.com for my blog and also some of our great SPECIALS! New and demo models of ZYX OMEGA in stock. Even the PREMIUM models. LOVE ZYX Omega. LOVE ZYX OMEGA PREMIUM even more. Raving reviews: “In a nutshell, the ZYX Omega G is one of the most musically engaging and satisfying cartridges that I’ve heard in quite some time. Many times I found myself unconsciously reacting to the music on the albums exactly like I would at a concert or jazz club. Head bobbing. Shoulders swaying. Wanting to applaud after an exceptional solo.” Myles B. Astor, Positive Feedback “Its most startling characteristic is a degree of purity unheard of in a a moving coil design.” “You’ll hear how precisely rendered are any of the sound it decodes, this it does with a purity and low distortion that elude everyone else’s design, and that means virtually all of the competition.” “It has the widest soundstage of all the cartridges we evaluated, and ,thus, the very best separation figures (and even makes sonic “sense” of that wide separation)” “And because of its carzy-glue-like way of sticking to a groove, it has the lowest audible distortion thus the purity and the sense of sparkle aplenty.” Harry Pearson, Absolute Sound, Oct. 2010 “There is also this unmistakable protrusion to the front of the cartridge in the form of a 1 gram sphere of lapis lazuli that acts as a concentrator and “drain” of any unwanted resonances. Yes indeed, this is one different animal.” Ray Seda, Dagogo, July 2010 “Ultimately enhanced power sound version of ZYX 4D. From surrealistic sound to airiness in three dimensional can be sensed. You will be surprised afresh with massive information grooved in a record.” Japanese Hi-Fi Journal, [Translated] We have new, demo and used models available. P lease give me a call for further details and your special pricing. SORAsound Specials Please check out our website SORAsound for the great products we offer as well as for NEWS, BLOG, pictures.

Synergistic Research PHT - Phono Transducer - Transfor...
Handmade in California. Transform your turntable’s performance dramatically with the NEW Synergistic Research PHT! PHT is an acronym for "Phono Transducer" and is an evolution of SR’s award winning UEF technology. Available in two different strains, Type ’I’ PHT adds a holographic ethereal dream like quality to your records while Type ’S’ is all about focus and clarity with musicality. To get started simply apply 1 micro PHT transducer, Type ’I or Type ’S’ to the top of your phono cartridge or head-shell for an immediate and dramatic transformation. Improvements include a lower nose floor, increased resolution, improved bass extension with increased air, and sound staging. Michael Fremer of Stereophile wrote:"...adding that blue PHT produced an ear-popping, Cinerama-like, wraparound soundstage, and an overall sound even less tethered to the speaker positions. The image focus was increasing razor sharpness, and there was greater front-to-back separation of sources within the soundstage... Decays were longer, and the backgrounds they faded into were 'blacker'... with the blue PHT in place the sound was clearly better overall, with improved focus, three-dimensionality, and transparency... " Dato' Danon Han of Mono&Stereo wrote:"...Synergistic Research PHT really work as advertised. I was jaw dropped as to its improvement over my analog set up. They are not expensive compare to the improvement gained. Please check them out and you may save quite a bit (or a lot) in your next upgrade. You can expect images solidifies, greater separation, cleaner mid and low, more dynamic and transient of energy, lower noise floor allowing the above to shine through and detail unheard of, and more...to enjoy!" Customer feedback:"...first, I would hardly find some one to give $150 for my used Ortofon X5-MC ($275 when I bought it, $550 last year). Then I would have to add some $600 (or $800?, or more?) to buy a catridge to give me the sound I now have with the Blue Velvet. Dramatic improvement? very close to that. It is not that you have suddenly to jump back, but as in 3D movies, is much easier to experiencie the sound. Yes, there is lower noise floor, more detail, more extended bass and treble, less harsh, more focus, less congestion ... but the most important gain is about music, art, beauty, feeling ... not about words. And for $125? Very ... very good deal. Very interesting to try this on good budget cartridges like 2M Red, Denon 103, Grado Prestige series, Shelter 201, Clearaudio Concept, and the like.""...in a word (or two or three); more musical - notes seem clearer and there is information there I have not heard before..."Available in two distinct strains:Type ’I’ PHT is called Blue Velvet. Its sound is ethereal, lush and holographic. You’ll definitely ’trip out’ the first time you experience your system on Blue Velvet! Type ’S’ PHT is called Purple Haze. Its sound is focused, precise and musical. The first time you listen to your favorite records on Purple Haze you’ll hear information you didn’t know existed, presented in a most precise and musical way. Owning Blue Velvet and Purple Haze PHTs it’s like having two high level state-of-the-art cartridges for the cost of a good stylus pressure gauge! Future PHT crops:Every 90-days or so SR will have a new crop of 2 new strains of precision handmade micro PHTs, one Type ’I’ and one Type ’S’ for you to try in your system for 30-days risk-free. Should you collect all 8-strains of PHT in the first year you’ll receive a free presentation case to hold all your PHT- plus one strain of PHT not available for sale, absolutely free! PHT’s are sold for $125 each or $199 for two (one Purple Haze and one Blue Velvet). Crop yields are limited and when sold out, they’re sold out. Initial PHT crop yield was 750 Blue Velvet and 750 Purple Haze precision handmade micro PHTs.

DYNAVECTOR KARAT NOVA 13 D UNIQUE!!!
Karat Nova 13 D: IMHO till today DYNAVECTOR do not surpass this legendary and exclusive cartridge design referent at its very high quality performance against today and vintage Dynavector other models. IMHO today the 13 D is till the Dynavector pinnacle of its state of the Art cartridge design. Its build quality is second to none as obviously each single construction cartridge part on its overall design. I know this because through my own audio system experiences/years I made several comparisons with other Dyna cartridges. Of course that I did comparisons with other top brand cartridges too and never felt that the Karat Nova 13 D was a vintage design but a today one!. My sample is an original one and how can I know it for sure?, because at least three unique characteristics: first its serial number, Dyna numbered from 1 to 99 ( exist other 13 D that are not really 13 D but 17 D that have higher serial number. ) mine is number 6, second that the cartridge wires that goes connected to its dedicated headshell comes hard wired directly from the cartridge coils ( the other similar but no originals samples are not hard wired. ), this characteristic is extremely important because till today the quality of the hardwired wires are not only responsables of its great quality performance but never even it for no other cartridge in the world and third its original 1.3mm diamond cantilever ( the smallest cartridges ever. ). Dyna builded two original 13 D cartridges: one with aluminum cartridge body and one with wood body. My sample is the wood one in an aluminum Dyna dedicated headshell. My sample really is in mint operation condition and I can tell you that even with that smallest cantilever is a tracking champ traking with out any trouble my/the famous Telarc 1812 ! from start to end of this extremely difficult for any today/vintage cartridge tracking LP, this extraordinary 13 D tracking abilities means ( for you/us. ) more real music information with a lower lower distortions!. With this kind of tracking characteristics through the 13 D you will discovery for sure many " music sounds " in your LP collection that you never imagine existed because your cartridges can't put on " alive " because its lesser self tracking abilities. You can mount the cartridge using its dedicated headshell or you can mount in other hedashell or even on tonearms that has no removable headshells and where the tonearm wires goes directly to cartridges with male cartridge pin connectors. To mount in this last way you need to change the female 13 D connectors for male ones. I used in both ways and I can send you the cartridge with female or male termination/connectors as you can decide. There are no precise words to fully explain the Karat Nova 13 D. If you are a music lover with a decent audio system then you have to own it and the 13 D will explain to you its very high quality performance characteristics. I will ship worldwide but Russia. I can ship by Mail Service, Fedex, UPS or what will be your choice at your expense. Payment could be too by your bank account transfer to my bank account. That " Price when new " ( 1,500.00 ) was in 1983 .Paypal add 3.75% Specifications: output level: 0.3mv. frequency respons : 20hz - 100khz channel separation: 25db at 10khz tracking force: 1.5g - 1.8 g. internal resistance: 12 ohms. recomend impedance: 40 ohms SUT or over 100 ohms active device.

ZYX UNIverse ii Welcoming Astro to the family
Wishing everyone a great week-end. We have a new family member. Please check out the pictures. ZYX UNIverse II. New and Demo available. Two more great reviews: Tone Audio and Positive Feedback. (also in stock used UNIverse One from customers who have upgraded to UNIverse II. All our cartridges come with warranty). Arthur Salvatore recently reviewed UNIverse ii. He wrote "The ZYX Universe II X is the finest cartridge I have ever heard, in my own system or elsewhere. In fact, for only the second time, in my long audio life, I have heard a cartridge which has no weakness, even subtle, compared to the competition. " (please read full review on his website). We played UNIverse ii in two rooms at CES 2013. Everyone loved what they heard. Mike Fremmer posted a picture of it and wrote "It sounded quite open and neutral." Another reviewer told me he got goose bumps and felt the emotions of the music. Audio Beat also posted a picture and wrote " ....the ZYX Universe II ($8495) had a larger-than-life reputation before CES commenced....With its motor installed in the same semi-nude acrylic body used for the ZYX Atmos/4D, the Universe II, with its .24mV output, has lowered resonance versus the Universe I, which remains in production. Thus far, Japanese cartridge designer Nakatsuka-san remains hushed about the new cartridge’s internals, but there was no hiding the resolute bass, perceptibly natural highs and superb midrange, all pointing to a highly refined frequency balance." SORAsound's Amazing Specials In the last few months, selected respected audiophiles, friends and customers listened to UNIverse II. The results were astonishing. The best-est i have heard for sure. We have a limited number in stock and will be receiving more shortly. Priority and availability goes to our existing customers, in particular existing UNIverse customers. As always SORAsound has generous trade-in, trade-up and move-to-ZYX programs available to our customers. We do our best to be fair, and more than fair in fact. As some customers upgrade to UNIverse II, we have more used UNIverse's in stock at attractive prices. These cartridges will be sent to ZYX to be checked, cleaned up, and such. SORAsound will provide limited warranty on them. So please contact us if interested. The original UNIverse remains in production. Please read more about UNIverse II UNIverse II.
