If you like the Shelter 501 you might want to consider the (more expensive) 5000/7000/9000 line of cartridges

I run the original Celebration. The Celebration II I believe is a very small update.
The Celebration Anniversary will be a bigger upgrade as it is a total
redesign. It is still in prototype form, but I have been told it has
a better leading edge, and more detail than the standard.
I think that is what I am going to consider, once it's
released around the new year.
I have been very happy with the Celebration.
I chose that cart since the table I was running it on
didn't allow for ultra precise set up, and the Celebration
is designed to offer great sonics without being setup
to the Nth degree (since most people can't get that level of prefection)
The Celebration on my new table/arm sounds amazing. My Phantom
arm allows for much more precise setup so I am tempted to try a cart
that requires more precision, but I'll proably go with the Anniversary.
When the Celebration was $1500, it was a no brainer. The $2000
price level of the Celebration II puts it within the price range of other
I do know that the entire Celebration line was designed to offer sonics
comparable to carts that retail for double each's prespective price.
