Cartridge is on the way (Allaerts MC1B Mk II), so now this is my last decision to make (yeah right) I'll have two arms, suppose I can get away with just an MC, and use my phono input on the pre for the MM. Would be cool if it were a two MC inputs so down the road my options are open for another MC cart without having to get another stage/step up. Not prepared to spend Steelhead dollars, looking to stay around $2,500. I have no issue going used if I can find a great one in my price range. So what are your favorites?
