@audioquest4life As far as I know, there is no US dealer for Vicoustic anymore. Hi, I think they are everywhere including the USA as i can see on the map, anyone can check here. There is a video from US representative. Yes, GIK & RPG is an a... 
A Night with three phono stages Allnic 1202, ANK and GoldNote PH10
If 71 db is available, that would handle even an Ortofon MC2000 with .05mV output at the standard stylus velocity. @lewm I’m using Ortofon MC2000 with Gold Note PH-10 not only at +6db setting which is mazimum (71dB), but also at +3db (68dB) as i h... 
Micro Seiki MA-505 variants - any oracles around?
BTW the arm on Pioneer Exclussive P3 and related top of the line Pioneer turntables was also designed by Micro Seiki and has some similarity with Micro Seiki MAX-282   
Micro Seiki MA-505 variants - any oracles around?
@br3098 MA-505 Mk III - 9" straight tonearm w/ copper wiring. It was designed to mate with very low compliance cartridges which were all the rage in the 1980s CORRECTION: It’s the other way around. This is the arm with 7g effective mass and track... 
A Night with three phono stages Allnic 1202, ANK and GoldNote PH10
@glennewdick Buy from Italian shops online and do not pay VAT, i paid about 970 Euro for PH-10 and 700 Euro or PSU including registered shipping, i am not in EU. I think this is amazing prices for such high quality phono stage!However, i am not su... 
Budget phono stage under $100, cheap but refined, does it exist?
@uberwaltz it's from the same company who brought us Denon 103, the phono stage, headphone amp and speaker are inside, battery powered mobile system.  
A Night with three phono stages Allnic 1202, ANK and GoldNote PH10
I’d like to hear what the separate power supply does for the sound maybe in the future.  Definitely!Thanks for the info, interesting, i think without power supply the PH-10 is not $2k, but much cheaper? Never heard the other two phono stages, b...

If you love the Ortofon 2M Black, you'll really love...... (help me upgrade)
@lewm Chak, If the stylus on that ATN170 assembly needs replacement, then what is the benefit to having it at all to go along with a complete ML150 cartridge? You could theoretically rebuild the ML150 stylus assembly to the same SS level as rebui...

@thomlocke Seriously look at the Stanton/Pickering line, it will be inpossible to find anything better at $300-400 range. Those vintage cartridges are extremely popular. Expert Stylus in UK still servicing them and easily can re-tip them with Para...

Rega P25 cartridge upgrade
So what is special about that Rega cartridges, the Exact is $400-550 cartridge with more than 6mV output and Vital Diamond. I think all Rega cartridges made by Audio-Technica, because Rega is not a cartridge manufacturer at all. The price is crazy... 
If you love the Ortofon 2M Black, you'll really love...... (help me upgrade)
How do you even find one of those? @dhcod  I've been waiting many years to find a NOS AT-ML180 with spare styli. A fellow collector offered $3k for that one. But SoundSmith aficionados can buy this one for rebuild with any top of the line modern...
