Relative noob here to the entry level hifi vinyl world. With so many options and opinions, I've been having a hard time "fairly" assessing my system. I would appreciate comments on any obvious weak link and on upgrade contenders. Here's the system: Yamaha A-S501; U-Turn Orbit with Ortofon 2M Blue; Monitor Bronze 2; Pro-Ject Tube Box DS2. The DS2 is brand new and I haven't received interconnects yet. I've been relying on the A-S501's internal preamp (which IMO seems pretty good). Apart from overall comments on the system, I would be interested to hear about what turntable and / or cartridge upgrades would make sense. For instance, keeping everything else the same, would a Rega Planar 6 be too "much" for the current system? Also, does it make sense to consider upgrading the cartridge to an Ortofon 2M Bronze. I've run the current 2M Blue for about 2 years and am approaching around 1000 hours, and found a new 2M Bronze for $340 (swapped from a new TT).
