Great dynamic range and very detailed on my Michell also
by James M
I purchased one of these and I adore it. Just open, airy, detailed and really made my Michell come to life. Also, I am not sure why Ryan had such a rough go.I love this cartridge, made my TT come alive!!
I really REALLY love my Talismann! One of my best upgrades in years! Used to have a MM (Virtuoso) but Talismann is better at everything. Great attack, wide perspective and excelent detailing. Very homogen performance and neutral sound. Great for Metal as well. Guess Ryan did something wrong or used it in a bad combination!
May be too bright for some people.
After 100 hours in a vintage Syrinx PU3 on an original SOTA Sapphire The Tali is ready for review. Tracking so far has been flawless and this is confirmed by test records. The Bass is detailed, tight and dynamic. The midrange and voices are silky smooth with accurate sound staging. Now for the down side. There is a broad 3 db depression centered on 4.5 KHz and a 5 db peak at 14 KHz. The result of this is the edgeless midrange but a brightness which is unnatural. I have room control so having corrected for this the the cartridge sounds glorious but without this capability I would reserve this cartridge for systems with a dull high end unless you are fond of this sort if sound.
