Turntables: Michell Gyrodec SE vs. VPI Scoutmaster

I am considering buying a Michell Gyrodec SE or a VPI Scoutmaster turntable. Can anyone tell me which table they prefer or should I be considering another table in the same price range (around $2000 - $2500 used)? Thanks

I recently purchased a used Gyrodec SE with the stock Michell tone arm (not techno arm). I matched with a van den hul frog cartridge and purchased the vta adjustment for rega arms. Last tweak was an incognito arm rewire. The final combination has been very pleasing to me. I am still learning about adjustments, but compared to my old Dual or Denon direct drive TT, the sound is exceptional. I now am thinking about the orbe!!! Does the upgrade bug ever stop?
