Audio-Technica VM750SH Dual Moving Magnet Shibata Stylus Stereo Turntable Cartridge
I was a Koetsu dealer for many years.  Setup a lot of them.  I don't seem to recall any severe tracking issues, but I'm getting old.  I still own several and I personally have never had an issue.  I happen to really like them. 
Audio-Technica VM750SH Dual Moving Magnet Shibata Stylus Stereo Turntable Cartridge
Your phono stage is a Musical Fidelity not a Mobile Fidelity.  It's going to be way better than the phono stage in that old Pioneer receiver, so I wouldn't even think twice about even using the internal phono stage.IMHO, with the gear you have/are... 
Audio-Technica VM750SH Dual Moving Magnet Shibata Stylus Stereo Turntable Cartridge
@mijostyn...I've set up hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of tables/arms/carts.  Kinda my forte, so I understand the more complicated and critical setup procedure of the microline carts.  So pretty sure, I've gotten them dialed in.Still doesn't c... 
Audio-Technica VM750SH Dual Moving Magnet Shibata Stylus Stereo Turntable Cartridge
I have one.  It's excellent!  IMHO, the microline stylus is a little too hot, (detailed and bright) for "my" tastes.The Shibata gives me the quickness and jump factor, but with a tad bit of sweetness thrown in.  My favorite stylus shape for sure.T...

Grant Fidelity parts ways with Psvane
try the Psvane Treasure or the new S series tube that replaced them, in every instance I have compared them to the Gold Lions they have come out on top. +1  Excellent tubes! 
Grant Fidelity parts ways with Psvane

JC3+ phono preamp
I had an original JC3 for many years as my reference. Was the closest thing I found to my beloved Vendetta Research. It was quiet, dynamic and just a killer phono stage. I now use a JC3 Junior and just adore it. YMMV.p.s.  Agree, lose the dimmer.

Inexpensive CD Transport...
I watched Steve's video on Leak. I still can't figure out if he liked it or not. Knowing his mannerisms from watching a ton of his videos, I don't think he is particularly enthusiastic about it. I agree.  I think he liked it at first, but by th...
