Question about Marantz Price


Hello All,
Would a lightly used Marantz TT-15s1 with the original cartridge at $800 be a good price and a good table to get if upgrading from a Denon Dp-300 with a Ortofon 2M Blue cart?
Thanks

If it has the Clearaudio Virtuoso cartridge in good condition, then yes.  If some other lesser cartridge has been put on the table, then maybe not (the Virtuoso is an $800 cartridge).
ok thanks for the input, I am trying to get that info from the seller.
Found out from the vendor that no cartridge is included.
But I am thinking, since it has no cartridge (assuming everything else is working well and in good condition) and I were to get say a Hana SL MC for around $600 (after a 20% discount as one vendor states), it would end up around $1400 to $1500 (after maybe taxes and shipping), I think that would be a decent deal considering the table new is around $1500.
I am still pondering, since I would need to get some type of dust cover.
I don’t get it.... Get a brand new one with virtuoso cartridge for around 1500 or a used one for around 1500....? How is that a good deal? Am I missing something?
Sorry, I probably wasn't clear.
The table is selling for $800 without cartridge and if I were to add a Hana SL MC (which I am assuming would be a superior cartridge to the stock Virtuoso, please correct me if I am wrong in my assumption), then that might be a decent deal, perhaps not a great deal but decent.
Do you feel I am looking at it all wrong?
IMHO that's not a very good deal.  I saw one with a cartridge at Echo Audio recently for the same price.  I own the Virtuoso Wood and the Hana SL and it would be hard to say that one is "better" than the other.  The Virtuoso is a little more detailed, the Hana SL a little more neutral.  I haven't tried them back to back on the same table to compare them, but those are my impressions.  Go to hifishark.com and search for the TT-15s1 and click on the sold/expired tab to see what they typically sell for and decide for yourself if that's a good deal or not.
I just saw one not far from where I live listed for $700 with the Virtuoso cartridge.  I have to resist the temptation to go buy it!
