New BLACK DIAMOND from analogis has just arrived (e.g. Swissline nude , nudeline swissmade). Among them are:
So far I have photographed the first needles and was pleasantly surprised in terms of production quality. There were only “good” ones, without any faults visible at first sight. The plastic body is as simple as before, in detail (and with the camera) you can find a not so nice corner. But this can be considered “normal” in the price range.
Again interesting: the “E” on the needles is mirror-inverted as usual. I suppose analogis wants to make itself distinctive with it. I’m curious how they sound, probably like real BDs, as soon as I get to it, I’ll report in detail 😉 …
Test Audio Technica ATN 3651 E green (AUDIO TECHNICA ATN 91, ATN 3600 L, DUAL DN 235, DUAL DN 239):
In terms of sound, it is far more “tidy” in the vocal range than the original needle, the stage is more clearly depicted and the bass range gains in precision.
Update 8.7 .:
A new delivery has arrived and the “E” has been corrected here. Almost a shame, but I also know that there were audio enthusiasts who had painted the wrong E over my black pen.
