... smooth and clean, having a nice svelte quality... trumpets and trombones sounding rich and fruity... smooth, easy-going yet refined. Vinyl surface noise ticks and pops were seemingly absent... the Quintet Bronze brought it into the room with alacrity.

... a trumpet solo coming over as clear and crisp. The orchestra remained composed and clean to the very end... vocals were smooth and her final sustained high came across with a confident power lovely performance... superb from LP inner grooves.

What I was hearing from this cartridge was... a lovely sense of body and refinement. Warm balance is beguiling. The Quintet Bronze was superb.

The lush sound of the recording was "enhanced in lushness"... full-bodied... analog-like... great stage depth... Lovely and gorgeous! Everything you could wish for...

It is supremely smooth in sound, full bodied and deep in sound stage. With a stylus that gets the best from inner grooves this is a moving coil that offers a great analogue experience. I just relaxed and enjoyed it.

EXCELLENT - extremely capable.

VERDICT - Smooth, lustrous vinyl sound with fine sense of depth. Laid back rather than fast.

Smooth, easy sound, ease of fitment, low surface noise.
