Crazy phono cartridge thread....
This is crazy because its so unique. So unique, nobody may be able to identify.
Here's the situation. I bent the stylus on my Dynavector 20x2L. Didnt feel like buying a new one, so I had it repaired. I sent it to VAS-NY.
Got it back, did a weeks worth of break in and this is what happened. I listen to it and it sounds different.
The repaired stylus puts out a beautiful sound, but it doesnt sound natural live. It sounds amplifed live. Does that make sense?
I've attended a lot of musical events. Intimate - a bunch of musical arts students singing opera to a small party, to public - club venues, up to ginourmous - tens of thousands concert venues.
I feel that I can tell between a live voice and one that comes through a PA system.
And so to mine ears, my vinyl now sounds live amplified. AND, I like it. The voices sound more natural, since I heard live amplified more than live natural.
Because, of that, I like it better.
Is that weird?
LIVE AMPLIFIED - Mildly tinny voice. Smaller sound stage.
LIVE NATURAL - Chesty voice. Larger sound stage.
