I just bought one as a replacement for an original Pro-ject 1. The TD-203 at its new lowered price of $699 and an Ortogon 2m Blue looked like the best bargain out there. I first was unsure of whether there was a VTA adjustment, but I found out that it's not documented in the manual, but is the same procedure as the TP-92 tonearm: i.e. loosen the tonearm locknut and pull up or down. So, it looks like it has all the adjustments I may want. The sound is very impressive on my best vinyl. Not sure if cart break-in is a myth, but I'm using it as much as I can, just in case I get further improvement.
