Not quite up to the hype ...

Johannes S., 16.08.2010
After 2 weeks with the S-120 I can say that it is a very great system, but I expected more. After I had the 120er "run" on an Edlosrille for one night (absolutely necessary, since the needle suspension is still so stiff, you cut the grooves with it deeper !!!) I went to act;)

The S-120 is approximately the same as the Q-Bert, but with a very fast movement, the S-120 is better than the Q-Bert. Where the Q-berts hold with me with 3.5 - 4 grams best, the S-120 usually needs 0.5 - 1 gram more.
Perhaps this is still after more game time. If yes comes a supplement of me.

The sound is beautifully linear but still musically, I could not discover any particularly stressed frequencies, but it still does not sound sterile. But simply very delicate.

My test records are almost all hip-hop and breakbeat but also for classic, or old soul and fun stuff it sounds very fine. With TSP there were no problems with regard to the signal quality.

Overall, a very good pickup, I am for my part but staying with the Q-berts when it comes to clubbing. Since I simply want to use as little support weight as necessary also with timecodes or Battle-Breaks, and a light bass-toning, I find anyway quite pleasant!

Personally, however, is still the question who whom Ortofon with the 120 wants to appeal?
I personally was curious about the whole Tam tam, but for timecodes and scratching, there are better pickups (mMn the Q-bert), and most mix Djs take the Nightclub because of the better sound. And the Audiophiles among us have sinfully expensive elliptical systems at home (I say only broadcast E).

As said, well, abe
