I probably wouldn't go over $600-700 for a single SUT.... Or maybe more, if I could use it for two different carts, say, the ART9 and and DL103 or DL103R. I sent Kevin at K&K Audio an email, and we'll see what he says re: SUTs. As for a phono stage that, unlike my Era Gold V, can do both MM and MC well.... I might go up to $1500 or possibly $2000. Sort of a buy once, buy well proposition.... Black Cube is on my radar. Also, the JC3 Jr. I like the idea of a phono stage with multiple inputs (I have two tables), which might include --Gold Note PH-10 (well reviewed) --Music Fidelity M6 Vinyl (3 inputs, almost zero reviews) --possibly the Pro-Ject Tube Box DS2 (which has 2 input, 2 output, but might not be a step up, overall, from my Graham Slee MM stage) Lots more fun research to do. Thanks for any thoughts. Excited to hear the ART9 in my system.
