Well thought i should review some of my thoughts on the Reflex C & Lautus Interconnects,which i recieved from Jon.Firstly never having had a phono stage before i was hoping for an improvement,not that i have hi end hi-fi,but i have kept the same equipment for about 30 years.It has been not used for 10years,but recently i have had the Amp serviced,the turntable had an overhaul,speaker cables upgraded,CD Player repaired,and interconnects replaced.Next logical step a Phono Stage.
Never told the wife about the loan as she think hi-fi is snobby bullsh*t,she has been round dealers in the past with me,and has her opinion,so she tells me the postmans been with a package,thats when i break the news,so off i go and connect it all up,about 45 mins she appears,the dreaded question Do You Notice Any Difference,i did not answer her,one week before, i bought a very good album she had been wanting for a while,and we had been playing it quite a lot,so i put it on the deck for her to listen to,and she said almost immediately THERE IS A DIFFERENCE ISN'T THERE.Big smileWink  
So the next 2 weeks were spent playing as many albums as i could with the new set up.Now i have just sent everything back and i am starting to play the albums again and what i notice it's a bit of a mish mash now,the bass is not as defined,the music seems to overlap,and the general quality of the sound is a lot weaker,in other words there is a big difference,just listening to Queen The Miracle,as i did last night with the Reflex and it's harsh compared to last night,sorry if i cant be more definitive about the Reflex and Luteus but these are my thoughts.Now i just need to persuade SantaWink
Thanks to Jon & Graham for the loan

Thanks for posting this review Alan, you've captured my experience exactly and probably that of others here. I also envy you your wise wife - "she said almost immediately THERE IS A DIFFERENCE ISN'T THERE."

Just an addition to my review of useing the Reflex C i did notice a few times when the album had finished and  when i was going to move the arm back,i got  kinda  beeps through a speaker for about 5 -10 secs.I have never had this before any thoughts what might have caused this.?

I don't know. It may be interference being amplified. What equipment is nearby please?
