Cant wait to hear your impressions of the Zyx cartridge. What cartridge are you using now?

The ZYX are some of the best sounding and best value carts out there. Right now I have the entry level Bloom that is surprisingly close to the Yatra with the silver base.
When I get back on my feet the plan is the Airy 3 and a Galibier table.

I'd love to hear how the Tron interacts with the ZYX. Mehran was great to deal with but was not able to fully inform me on transformer matching with the ZYX. For some reason I like the theory of transformer step ups for low output MCs.

Did you get the .24?
Tyrion went ZYX from a Benz wood not sure of the exact model but it was a $2000+ cart. We both thought the ZYX was more natural sounding but lacked none of the detail of the benz.

Sounding good so far.ZYX carts do need considerable burn in (so I've been told) and I need to find a better position for the step up as it's picking up some hum from other equipment.

I have tried the ZYX straight into the Artemis and it's sound pretty good
