Having had a 4Point on the floor for demo here for a good while, I think you captured the essence of what it's all about: getting out of the way to pass the music the way the performers intended.

I've been playing with 4Point for 3 years now. I am very pleased and I recognize your findings.
Anyhow, Mr Fremer always seem to observe new things I never even thought about after three years.

What tonearms have come to, I wish I could afford suct a beauty!

I have seem many changes in audio reproduction in my life and I believe there is a comment here on the way we did it way back when. There is a trend back to analog and it is for a reason!

What happened to SACD and DVD Audio, same fate for computer servers and DAC's?

I have listened to music servers and DAC's and all I can say is compared with vinyl (much less R2R tape) no thanks.

I applaud the new breed of analog pioneers, gret job Mr. Kuzma!

Fantastic review! After all these years have you compared the Cobra tonearm on a Lyra Atlas versus Kuzma-Lyra Atlas? Have you tried the Kuzma 4 Point with other MC cartridges?

I just purchased a Kuzma 4 Point solely because I believe in your in depth reviews and analysis. In fact I always consult your reviews and articles in Stereophile and AnalogPlanet on on my analog purchase decisions. Thanks for being there for us!
