    2- AR XA, one modified by Marc Morin running a Grado Gold 2, the second fitted with a Jelco tonearm and running a Denon DL-110 or a Shure V15 Type IV with a JICO SAS stylus.

    Just saw this post. I'm using the same Elac model! Sounds pretty good and it's automatic

    VPI Prime Scout - highly doubt I'll ever upgrade it, I've reached the pinnacle for me. Combined with McIntosh C47 pre and MC402 amp, I just can't do better with my budget. I do have a U-Turn Orbit at our lakehouse, paired with a fun B&O Beomaster system. Love the look.

    Beogram 4002; Soundsmith customized an old MMC20EN cartridge I had sitting around, adding a ruby cantilever and contact line stylus. I am very happy with the sound.

    Isn't Uturn pretty awesome for what you spend on it? I Have upgraded from Uturn but I highly recommend them to anyone looking to get into vinyl.

    It does the job and more importantly won’t harm your records in the process. I’ve recommended it to strangers when I saw them looking at Crosleys. They think I’m crazy of course, but I always figure if just one listens to me, they’ll end up with a young lifelong music lover.

    Working on re-vamping a Sumiko Pro-Ject 6.1 - needs a new tonearm, but I'm also trying to soup-up the plinth and motor.

    Nice table! :righton:
    Did you start with this arm or did you upgrade to it at a later date?

    Thanks - started with this arm. I bought the combo at Music Direct for a nice discount several years ago.
