Now using Spin Clean cloths for drying...
Oh ok...so the Vacuum does the best job. I wonder if I'm the only one who owns a Vac Cleaning Machine who cloth dries. I watched a You Tube reviewer do a system tour the other day. I can't recall his name, but apparently he reviews for AUDIOPHILIA...

Raul- Do the moving magnets do better at pushing the dust out of the way? (-: Does anyone have any more thoughts on my cloth drying as an alternative to vacuuming?  
Now using Spin Clean cloths for drying...
I hear you...and I’m trying to be open minded. Being that it’s a Vacuum cleaning machine, the LP surfaces are being touched after cleaning either way. Either by the Vac wand during the Vac dry stage, or by cloth drying. I'm aware these two options... 
Now using Spin Clean cloths for drying...
Good point as far as the dust goes. If using medical gloves, and a safe cloth such as the Spin Clean, I'm not sure of any apparent negatives other than the dust. But that is wiped off with a dry brush (such as the Hunt or Audioquest) after the clo... 
Turntable sub $4k buy decisions too many.
That's a sweet looking table. About how much was the setup with the Sorane arm. Nice choice...that arm should allow so many great cartridge options. Congrats on the purchase.   
Turntable sub $4k buy decisions too many.
Love the Kuzma Stabi S/Stogi arm suggestion, but it's definitely well over $4K. In the $2k price range, the above suggested Marantz and Mo-Fi suggestion would be where I would go first. If you read the Marantz thread here, I'm on that very path. I... 
Marantz TT15/ Clearaudio Satisfy for MC carts?
The Mo-Fi ad says $6K for the Table, and $5K for the phono. If it’s $3K, I think my search is over. Chayro...I totally agree with you. Just so I’m doing my best to communicate.....I went to the dealers to hear the Naim XS 3. I purchased it on the ... 
Marantz TT15/ Clearaudio Satisfy for MC carts?
Mo-Fi is coming out with a new table, and judging from the photo, it's pretty sweet looking. A  bit more than I want to spend, but since we are on the subject...It's supposed to be coming in around $6K.         
Marantz TT15/ Clearaudio Satisfy for MC carts?
I think it would be hard to go wrong with the Marantz. I even bought a $20 gizmo from Amazon, which is a grounded female outlet, wired to a male grounded plug. This comes with a mini hand held remote enabling you to turn on/off anything plugged in... 
Marantz TT15/ Clearaudio Satisfy for MC carts?
Absolutely agree...I had no issues at all with the Virtuoso. I have very little experience with MM carts, but this one was quite positive. It's more about choosing the right table and arm. And it's my bad for not making it clear that I'm not 100% ... 
Marantz TT15/ Clearaudio Satisfy for MC carts?
bjp9738- This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much. I will check out my EMT TSD 75...I believe it’s high compliance, so it should mate well with the Satisfy. I believe what you mentioned about the Virtuoso being a bit noisy in the gro... 
Clearaudio Turntables
"Clearaudio makes some great arms. They also make a few terrible ones, very much like Frank Kuzma. " I’ve heard this opinion on the Clearaudio arms. Not so much on the Kuzma’s. I’m interested in the Marantz (Clearaudio made) TT15 and Satisfy arm... 
Marantz TT15/ Clearaudio Satisfy for MC carts?
I'm trying to keep this system as sane as possible. I have around 7k in to it so far...the Ton Trager stands didn't come cheap. I'd like it to be a well balanced system that will be less than 10K after the turntable. At the end of the day, I'm sur... 
Need some Cart recommendations, $300 - $700 (New/Used) range…warm, full, yet great def.
Charisma Denon 103...EMT HSD006 (may be a bit out of $ range), but discounts are generally possible. You could consider an EMT Tsd series used. Have you tried the Dynavector 20X. It's a much different sound than the 17D for instance...Of the above... 
Dr. Feickert Blackbird
Interesting comparison with the DC vs AC motor Karl...Which leads me to a quick recommendation for the OP. Don’t snooze on the Stabi REF 2. It’s going to be a different sound than the "R", which admittedly, I’ve not heard. I have heard general com...
