Thanks sbank ,
Been own the Rua for few month then before it Is Kansui.
But for my memory this kind different compare to XX2, it has own sound degree in bass Religion and if I I can said also have more sweetness in high maybe more extended, Nothing bad just different.
My fav still XX2 for money .
But Kansui Is total Different ,you got the slam on bass that no other cartridge can .
Musical in mid range too And only draw back is their compliance kind low .
If I have heavy arm that will my keeper for sure .
Hope this help ,
Enjoy

Nice system, love the Air Tights...I used to own ATM-1.

As a XX2MkII owner, I'm interested in hearing about your cartridge journey and how it compares to the others you listed here. Thoughts?

Hi orfeo, thanks.
The ATM-2 is very robust amp & build to last . Mine been update from previous owner and so far only blew fuse once.
Also have 1power socket Is bad within few years own It so sent to service .
Now still playing and enjoy it .
Hope this help you decide  .

Hello @honeyooi ,
Very fine system!
I have owned Harbeth M30.1, like you. I have upgraded towards M30.2 Anniversary (magnificent).
About the AirTight ATM-2: there is one to sell not far from my place, 1st owner. Don't know the amplifier's age. Air Tight has good reputation, BUT
a) I read that many report the 'tube blown' issue. Then you have to replace the fuse, and it must be soldered (?!). If it has to be serviced, it weights 32Kg!!
b) the ATM-2 is discontinued.
c) the "front-input-is-better" weird thing is, well...weird. There are attenators; is it worth using it without preamp?

At present I have a Marantz PM-16 and a NuPrime AMG-STA class A preamp, and AMG-PRA power amp (130w stereo, class A+D); very fine little combo. I listen mainly to classical, large room and very good acoustic, no neighbors.

Thanks!

I do love this VPI 3D gimbal arm ,replace the old metal unipivot design.
It help eliminate my inner groove distortion on some LP .
Great upgrade !

Thanks Joel ,
I can said I’m big fan of Air Tight when comes to harbeth.
Unfortunately when starting with Harbeth I’m already switching to tube amps.
I try some SS amp but not Pass amp ,mostly over 100 watt !
I can said that SS amp bring the best of harbeth within bass but I prefer midrange of tube 😁 and also my room is small.
So yeah Harbeth speaker love power .
Cheers 

honeyooi

Very nice system! I have the 30.1 Anniversary paired with a McIntosh MA8000 which is a pretty good match. But Air Tight is high on my wish list :) Have you tried the combination 30.1/INT-150? Thanks!
