I have an LP12 w/Basik plus arm. I quite enjoy the Shure V15MxR cartidge. Even if I had a better arm, I'm not really that interested in MC carts.

I would suggest the Akito will handle most moving coils very well.Friedns have had good results with high ouput Ultimos on the Akito - I don't think it merits spending megabucks.
On my Linn(s) & Xerxes, I have been very impressed with the extremphono donut & skin mats. Never liked felt and always used Ringmat XLR - the extreme is better in every respect (imo). as much detail but more 'body' and better balanced.
Also it's reasonably priced.
