I want to try a MM

Hi there.

My vinyl system consists of a Nottingham Mentor/space Arm/Transfiguration Esprit.

I'm in the mood for som changes, so I was thinking of trading in my Esprit for a Grado Ref or a Cartridge Man MM MK III. You see, I'm trying to get a bit more warmth in my system. So what do you think? Is it something worth trying?

You should also consider the Shelter 501 and the ClearAudio Virtuoso Wood. Both offer excellent performance for the money. I have a Grado Reference in my analog system, and altho' their tonal characteristics are a bit different (the Grado sounds warmer), I think it's almost a dead heat between the Grado and the Shelter 501 (which sells for $400 less)
