In a fit of some madness, I purchased--as an upgrade to an entry-level Pro-Ject TT--both a Technics SL1200-GR and a Marantz TT-15s1. The Technics is staying. It's beautifully made, and I have it set up nicely with an Ortofon 2m Bronze. A few little kinks I'm working on, but I'm pretty happy with it. A lot of great posts on this site guided me to it. Thanks, y'all! (And Hifiheaven... great service there. Highly recommended.) So... now the Marantz sits in its box, unopened, asking whether I ought to crack it open and try it out, too. I got a solid deal on it ($1179 refurb, but appears to be like new), and I've read a lot of great things about this table and how great a value it is with its high quality (and relatively pricey) ClearAudio components. And, frankly, I like the looks of it a lot. So, I'm tempted to keep both, under the principle that 1) a belt-drive offers a different flavor than a direct-drive 2) that ClearAudio Virtuoso cart ($800 on its own) might be a decent upgrade to the 2m Bronze, and, knowing my habits, I'm likely to get a better cart (MM preferred, see system below) at some point anyway, and 3) the Marantz is just a cool-looking table. The arguments against keeping the Marantz 1) I can return it and get a full refund and $1200 ain't nothing 2) perhaps it's redundant given the quality of the Technics 3) do I really want the hassle of running two turntables at once or swapping them out? 4) the ClearAudio Virtuoso cart gets generally positive reviews but is not recommended as frequently as other carts 5) in a couple years, knowing my habits, I might go for a really hi-fi turntable, i.e. a true upgrade rather than side-grade from the Technics.... So, soliciting opinions from the wise folks here. Would these tables/carts be nice complements? Or does the Technics make the Marantaz basically redundant? With sincere apologies for one of those "What should I do?" first posts. Thanks much for your thoughts/guidance. I'm not a complete noob with vinyl, but I'm still learning. Rest of my system: Graham Slee Era Gold V phono pre --> AES (Cary) AE3 DJH preamp --> Quicksilver SET Monoblock Power Amps --> Klipsch Forte III speakers. Music preferences: mostly 60s-70s Blue Note/Columbia/Atlantic/Impulse small group jazz, with a bit of folk, 70s rock, Gillian Welch, Neil Young, Wilco, etc. etc.
