before i get shot down in flames.............
I thought i lost a bit of excitement of the Carnival, I was actually quite dissapointed in it 'in my system'
i then sold it on and changed to Rumour, which to my ears was the same as the Odyssey
Got Rumour at the minute - but I have been caught hook, line & sinker with cables - I am going back to a quality thick copper cable - might even try Rega Quattro as its cheap
Black Gyro SE / Nagaoka MP500
Some people prefer Van Damme Blue or OFC to Rumour, if you search there are 1 or 2 posts on here about it. VD is cheap around £3 -£5 for 4mm, Van Damme is made for the pro market rather than the hifi market. So if you are thinking about Rumour I would try Van Damme as well.
Never got to try the 301s, RicherS Watford did not have them in stock, said something like special order only.
