    For many years this was Cardas' top cable and my cable of choice together with a Neutral Reference as they shared similar characteristics and complemented one another.

    Golden Ref is not directional but IMHO gets so in use. Hence the rubber bands denoting the source end

    Cardas Neutral Reference needs little introduction. This was part of my interconnect system together with a Golden Reference as they are part of the same family and share many of the same properties




    Neutral Reference are not directional but I believe that they do become so in use. I have therefore marked the source end with elastic bands so that always go back the same way.

    The original packing and certificate are included

    At the risk of repeating what I said on AoS, this is a superb tonearm at a really good price.  Truly one for those with champagne tastes but a beer budget.  I only sold mine to upgrade to the Arm Three V2 which is the same arm just with silver cabling.

    I too have this Arm 1. It really is a cracker!!

    I probably won't for a good while as the power amps don't come up that often used. I believe the 534 is the same as the 834/8L6 anyway? 

    Looking for an 890 ideally. Unsure if the 861 will be powerful enough. 

    Yes the 861 is the best one to go for. WPC don't mean that much with EAR poweramps . However 861's are like rocking horsepoo and expensive.  Goes well with Tannoys

    890 has grunt but is somewhat coarse by comparison

    Arriving tomorrow :)

    I'm going to use my 8L6 in power amp mode until I go on the hunt for a dedicated power. 

    I had an 8L6 for many years and used it both in integrated form and then with an EAR864 in power amp mode.

    It makes a superb combo with the 868 and even with my Hovland pre.

    Don't be in too much of a rush  to sell it on

    And a story:

    A man once came to see the Buddha to get help with his problems. After the man had told the Buddha one of his problems and asked for help, the Buddha replied: "I cannot help you get rid of that problem."

    The man was surprised that the Buddha could not help him in this regard, but he told the Buddha about another problem; he thought to himself that the Buddha should at least be able to help him with that problem. But the Buddha told him "I cannot help you with that problem either."

    The man started to get impatient. He said: "How can it be that you are the perfectly Enlightened Buddha, when you can’t even help people get rid of their problems?" The Buddha answered: "You will always have 83 problems in your life. Sometimes a problem will go, but then another problem will come. I cannot help you with that."

    The baffled man asked the Buddha: "But, what can you help me with, then?" The Buddha replied: "I can help you get rid of your 84th problem." The man asked: "But what is my 84th problem?" The Buddha replied: "That you want to get rid of your 83 problems."

    Genius.  -_-
