I went from a Clearaudio Concept with Hana EH to a Clearaudio Ovation with a Clearaudio Universal tonearm and Hana ML. Worlds different and astonishingly good. Could be my last table, possibly not. What made the upgrade even better was selling my Chinook (which blew away my Musical Surroundings Nova III) moving up to the Allnic H-3000. At the advice of others, the phono really does need to be upgraded. My Allnic is one of my favorites and possibly my last phono I'll need.
Spend the money now or you'll be continuing to spend it. Choice is yours.
