When writing this test, I decided to eliminate terms such as "vinyl-like", "analog", "turntable-like" etc. It seemed to me that I should refrain from cliches such as: "If this is a belt drive, then it "must" sound like a turntable, right?" And yet you have to prove first that it does "sound" in any way since "zeros" and "ones" are nothing more but "zeros" and "ones". I started writing this way and it wasn't going bad at all. However, I quickly found myself censoring myself in this way and that these key words keep coming back, and they actually gave the whole a proper meaning.
Because IT IS an "analogue" sound, associated with the warm and saturated sound of a turntable. The differences between TL2 N and Ayon and Gryphon drives are clear, easy to define even by an untrained ear - each of these mechanisms sounds differently (using the term "sounds" I mean "modifies the signal").
