I've had a Scout with Dynavector 10x5 for almost a year now and I love it. Light years ahead of the Music Hall MMF-5se and Goldring I had before it.

Hey Slvrtravel............Just like you, most of my LP collection is 50's (and 60's) jazz. Brubeck, Coltrane, Rollins, Blakey/Messengers, Morgan, Mobley, Grant Green, Miles, Peterson, Silver, Mingus, Monk, etc., etc.
It seems as if your Scout/DV20H set-up may be a good idea, and something to start saving towards. Since I'm presently very happy with my NAD/Rega/Goldring front end for now, I'm in absolutely no rush for my "dream analog upgrade."
What's the rest of your system like ? Is your analog rig compatible with an MM phono stage ?
Hey back adam...yes, the rig is compatible and actually favors MM ( as you prob. know you can simply switch arms on the scout and have your alternate arm equipped with a MM or aMC and mac favors MM but i'm hunting an audio research ph5 or 7 to improve on the MC-- got mac 501 monoblocks and mac prepro into sonus faber cremonas with synergistic research tesla and apex cables---nice SWEEEEET musical sound---chet and gerry would have approved----good luck on your choices and enjoy the music.
Right back at ya', Slvrtravel............Thanks for the reply, and the MM stage advice. Wow, your system certainly does dound SWEEEEEEEET !! And, as a matter of fact, as soon as I'm finished watching the Olympic swimming tonight (Go Phelps !!), I'll go down to my music room and listen to a little Baker and Mulligan.
Happy Listening, my friend !!
