Reduction + Integration with Sumiko Blackbird HO
« on: November 29, 2017, 03:59:12 pm »
Hello all,

I've been enjoying my newly built Reduction + Integration with a Garrett Optim FGS which is rated at 4Mv. I'm wondering if a Sumiko Blackbird HO at 2.5Mv would work. I bought it cheap as it needs a new stylus but I don't want to spend the money right now if it won't be compatible. Don't tell me I need to build an Eros!

Thanks,

John

It's a little below the minimum of 3mV that we recommend.

OK, I'll ponder it a while. BTW, I can't believe how much the Integration really kicked it up a few notches. So much more detail and separation of the instruments. Plus vocals are great! Really nice. Thanks Doc!
