Those Larcs look interesting. How are they with the 10W Oto?

Good question.

Firstly, I really liked the Ittok - so full of life, drive, rhythmically extremely articulate/demonstrative and just downright great fun.

The downside is that I wasn't 100% happy with the presence-region 'sting' it tended to tarnish sounds with. Fine on drumkit (rim shots were particularly life-like) but on wind instruments - Tenor Saxophone in particular - it was all a bit too shouty and uncouth. Spoke to Peter at Cymbiosis (who rates the Nima very highly) who was happy to exchange the Ittok and at the same time the Cirkus bearing was fitted.

Got the deck back home and wondered what the hell I'd done! Over the next week though, it really settled down with music re-gaining cohesion and whilst not as dynamic as the Ittok on the transient sense, it easily keeps up in letting music breathe naturally. It's also more detailed and a lot kinder to orchestral music, for example.

Oh yes - part of the 3-lp Ravel/Perlemuter/Nimbus set which gets a lot of play-time here. My old piano teacher studied under VP at the Conservatoire National de Paris so feel a slight connection - although I was never going to be a great pianist, I'll admit.

Isn't the ARO a bit low in effective mass for the DL-103 or do you think the Zu body overcomes that?

Super cute. I've been trying to find a picture of these in situ for a while now but didn't realise they were that tiny.
