Is a HO MC cartridge a good choice for me?
I second the K&K audio stepup for a low output MC cart, but the Benz in not a bad choice especially if the dealer will do the setup for you.

Johnnantias. I guess reverting to insults when you cannot produce objective reasons for your views is probably as good as you can do. Throwing insults at me is rather sad as you know nothing about me personally, nothing about my musical requiremen...

Sean, I was unaware Garrards were still available new. I was wrong, you were right. Are they better than Teres, VPI, Galabier and Progressive though? I doubt that and I doubt you will disagree on that either. In fact, I’ll eat my record collection...

Sean, your point is what? You quote my statement of "Fact is there are none on the market" and go on to talk about restoring tables that have been OFF the market for 30 odd years? Surely you do not think that Garrards are still being sold no?

Johnnantais. I give you 11 out of 10 for trying, but you are crossing the line into the ridiculous.'So here's some actual facts'A few opinions posted on the BB are hardly facts. And no, simply because you really like these opinions don’t make them...

Psychic. I appreciate a person who sees the funny side of things. I do too (most of the time) . You keep on harping about my ignorance, but from my side the ignorance seems to be yours.'Greco, take this from the underground: the Creature on Steroi...

Dvdgreco. A $100 could improve your table to a level that may suffice, so you should consider it by all means. As an avid tweaker myself, I know the satisfaction gleaned from improving existing gear. But it would be very naïve to think a $100 can ...

"the Creature on Steroids will be at the $5K performance level"? LOL! Yep, sure it will, and I bet folks will be beating down you door for that no doubt.

Sean, taking my statements out of context to satisfy your infantile desire to make asinine remarks brings no value to the discussion. Why don’t you enlighten us how your post is any less [ignorant] than Psychicanimals?

Johnnantias. RB250 & Rb300 cannot track Koetsus. I have tried and it sounds like sh*t. I guess it may have sound nice to some, but I am sad to say those individuals would be better off with something from Best Buy. Having run the same cart (Ko...

Stan. Ouch on your remarks of the Koetsu. I really enjoy mine. :-) I agree fully on the RB tone arms. I have owned a couple over the years in various states of modification and they are no more than junk once a certain level of performance is requ...

I second Stanhifi. If idler wheels had sonic merit they would be readily available now. It is not mere coincidence that the all audiophile table are belt driven. The best audiophile turntables are belt driven because at our current level of techno... 
3 questions re: Rega RB 600/RB 1000
Overhang. You may want to consider an arm other than a Rega 1000 since you will need to replace the armboard anyway. The Graham 2.1 and SME 309 both retail for about the same and IMHO are better arms.

Dvdgreko. I have not owned a SOTA Sapphire or Sumiko Premier FT-3 arm, but I have heard the combination is good from a number or reputable (?) posters and I have no doubt in my mind it is substantially better than a P3. If you can get said table i...
