Dynavector Te kaitora Rua, SPU-200 step up

DSC01201

Most of my customers know I have a fondness for the Dynavector MC cartridges. I have had all of them on the floor except the Te Kaitora Rua. Well that all changed about a month ago. I ordered one of these “beauties”. I wasn’t sure what to expect, I knew it would be good. I mated the cartridge to the Dynavector SPU-200 step up. What I heard was quite amazing! This cartridge and step up played with the “big boys” In terms of resolution, dynamics, humanity, space and body. This cartridge is beyond reproach. You will need to spend a lot more  money to get something better. If you are considering a cartridge in the $3000.00 range you should put this on your short list. Always available for auditioning.

Keith Monks discOveryOne RCM

The new Keith Monks RCM arrived about a month ago.  The features are quite similar to it’s big brother. Actually, I find the new unit a bit easier to use. The unit comes in at $2495.00 for a all manual unit and $2995.00 for the semi-automatic version.

Features include:

The quietest ever electric record cleaner (37dB, C weighted, 1 metre) • Very simple and intuitive to use • Original Keith Monks Point Suction Precision Clean vacuum system • Whisper quiet medical grade diaphragm suction pump – a compact version of the BBC specification vacuum pump. • Classic Keith Monks precision wash system with Mini Cooper wash pump (discOveryOne Classic) • Automatic functions including auto off • Engineered for long life and reliability • Every drop of fluid removed by powerful vacuum arm • Fresh, unused, uncontaminated cleaning fluid for every record • Fresh, unused, uncontaminated contact with machine for every record • SuperSilent professional direct drive turntable • Automatic thread reel out • Dry cycle semi-automatic process • Auto shutdown if the waste container is full.

The machine is as large as the more expensive Omni series. Based on a Panasonic direct drive turntable it is super easy to use. It is a little slower than the Omni but cleans a record perfectly. The version I have is the semi-automatic, a push on the fluid button and you are ready to go. I think it takes about 45 seconds per side.

If you are in the market for a super high quality RCM, be sure to check this out.
