Just a throw your random opinions around thread. Strengths and weaknesses, of each. I know there are lovers - and, ummmmm, not lovers - of the Technics 1200, but I'm enjoying mine with the Ortofon 2M Black: like, a lot. Would the VPI Aries be a "wow" upgrade, or lateral move? What about the 2M Black on the VPI? Dynavector vs. Ortofon? Or, save my pennies for a Prime? Always appreciate the input here: thanks.
