    I had a Lyra Argo(i) which I enjoyed for quite a while. It tended to be a bit analytical in places but very good. But now I have stepped up to the Lyra Etna Lambda which I find to be terrific. Lots of detail but very musical. I think Lyra has reached a point of great imaging, wonderful bass, and close to dead neutral. I remain impressed by them.

    To be fair, in my experience setup is critical to all cartridges.

    I’ve owned mine for close to 2 years. It was professionally installed. I’ve found it to be amazing in S/Q and I can’t fault it. I would give it a chance and make your own mind up. The audiophile community can be love it or hate it and no middle ground.

    I also have a Technics TT and Sutherland pre amps. I think you will enjoy the sound

    Ok...its on the list for Friday.....Garners a required taste.....most of his stuff on wax is bad recordings from back then...dont know why. If you want wax, the best one to get is Night Concert. Dude couldn't read music, but played by ear....He's the one that composed Misty. Had to sit on 2 telephone books while playing piano....Dude is a genus. He was once asked why he never learned to read music?, His reply......"No one can hear you read music". He could hear a tune on the spot, and on the spot play it back to you. He was a genius.

    yes, to the "untrained" eye !
    the line is below the surface of the glass so it looks off but when you see it from the side or top it is good....

    The Lyra's do need about 60 hours to break in. Something to remember when giving first impressions.
    OP, how do you change azimuth with that tonearm/headshell? A photo would be great.

    A little cumbersome to be sure, and maybe not even intended for the task, but there it is ...

    That's kinda ugly and not too user friendly, that screw is on the underside??
