Ray’s recommendation of the VPI/Jelco combo is a real good one. I myself would much rather have that table and arm than the Rega 3.
The AI Modulus pre is not a good choice for a very high output cartridge like the Elys 2. Not so much because of it’s phono stage (which in stock form provides 30dB of gain, I believe), but because of it’s line stage---a ridiculous 30dB there as well. Your volume pots (dual mono---ugh) may be barely cracked open at normal listening levels.
Some guys like a particular pre so much they buy a cartridge to match it---that's like buying speakers appropriate for an amp you already own and love. Others prefer to choose a cartridge first, then a pre appropriate for it. Cartridges and speakers, being transducers, exhibit greater differences between each other than do electronics, some people feel. Others disagree. You will find out for yourself shortly, it seems!
