First, congrats on your new purchase. Great table by all means. Actually, your entire analog rig is quite impressive I must say.
My two cents:
The Source, meaning a Turntable player, is at the beginning of the audio chain.
This is where the music /audio signal starts. I am sure you have heard the old saying....."junk in junk out"
The source is the most important part of any good audio system. This is where one should not nickel and dime themselves.
In other words, your system will be as good as your cart will allow it to "sing"!!!!!!!
AT OC 9 II or III is a great cart for the money
DV 20X2 will offer move information
DV 17D3 is where I would start for your kind of rig
That said, after 25 + years as an "audiophile" bull shit wannabe, Lyra will blow you mind away!
Bottom line, you will NEVER be able to appreciate "music" unless you can "retrieve" the "right" sound with the "right" cart.
Buy a cart that will be up to par with your rig! Your system deserves a better cart than what you are currently searching for. Trust me.......sorry.......
Trust your ears!
