Hi, I am looking to upgrade my turntable (currently have an old 1994 Pro-ject 1.2 with orftofon 510mkII cartridge) as it is sounding a bit tired in my system (Graham Slee Gram amp 2 Phono pre amp, NAD 3030BEE). I have been recommended several turntables around the £250-£600 mark (eg. Pro-ject Perspective, Goldring 2, Rega 3) but these are all fully manual turntables which, though I've put up with manual for 12 years, is now more of a pain as I've managed to obtain a very healthy collection of 7" singles over the past five years or so. Therefore the turntables I am currently considering are: 1) Thorens TD 295 MkIV. Would probably upgrade the supplied ortofon cartridge to a decent Goldring (1012GX) putting another £100 on the price. 2) A second hand Linn Axis (seem to go for very reasonable amounts on ebay) again with an upgraded Goldring cartridge. 3) Pro-ject Xpression mk11 with Pro-ject speed box. I'm tending to lean to the Linn at the moment but I would appreciate anyones thoughts or suggestions. Cheers Backtomono74.
