It was just a random nice photo that many of us post to discussions.

    Second image a third COMMERCIAL party has taken that image and minimally altered it (i.e. cropped it a little, maybe straightened it and background blurred it). But it has not been altered in any way that anyone closely looking at the photo could call significantly altered to make the original image unrecognizable.

    Because the second image was used by a party unknown to John Michael for commercial purposed without so much as a "do you mind" it would fall under copyright infringement.
    So finally I see you're point Ryissa -- my apology to you and to JohnMichael for that matter.

    Frankly I don't use a turntable anymore, (have scarcely done so in the last 15 years), so I didn't take the time to read and digest JM's original post or to properly take his meaning. That is, I mistakenly thought he was just talking about is TT and cartridge.

    I dare say that people do this sort of nefarious copying all the time. I note that the second, ad photo says "copyright @ Dzone HK LTD"; I guess he could go after them if wanted to. I dare say they would deny their evident misdeed.

    JM: "Moving iron cartridges replace the magnet on the cantilever with an additional piece of metal so not as low mass as the induced magnet cartridges."

    nice. the low moving mass may be oone of those contributory factors to the apparent speed and consequent detail that comes from the XLMx along with that SHORT cantilever and HIGH compliance. perhaps due to nostalgia's affectation, the XLM remains my choice for favorite cartridge.

    the sonus was arguably a noticeable improvement. my friend went on to them and was entirely embroiled with its sound. and yes, i agreed with him then because i didn't have the dough to keep up the pace because i was bringing up a family and paying for a house etc.

    we did hear the deterioration of sound as the compliance decreased following the sale of ADC to BSR by Peter. the design of the sonus was ostensibly the same as the XLM with a different outward appearance. BSR made him stop and that was the end of that.
