Still stuck with a shit Sony PS-LX70 turntable. I play my records occasionally and will be getting a better one sometime in the future.

Great stuff, all of it. Has anyone ever upgraded their player? Did you notice a difference that was worth the price. Im especially interested in cartridges and stylus.



I think you will notice a huge difference in sound quality over your current set up if you decide to get the Debut III, even with the supplied cartridge. You should get a year or two out of it (depending on your listening habits) before you start looking at replacing/upgrading your cartridge.

That specific cartridge was designed exclusively for DJ's and scratching. Therefore, it doesn't offer a good soundquality. Get an audiophile Shure M97XE instead.

Great TT... picked it up for $100 cause it was a display model. Only negative is dust cover sold separately.

I R FUCKING LOSE.


The same with this cartridge. This, again, is a cartridge oriented for DJs exclusively. You need an audiophile cartridge.

My current setup is a JVC QL-7 turntable with a Denon DL-103 cartridge, running into a Yamaha A-720 integrated amp and a set of Polk RTA-11T speakers. Pretty happy with it overall. The only lame thing about getting a moving coil cartridge is that when the styles wears out, you have to either send it to someone to get it re-tipped, or just get a new cartridge. i've had mine for three years, so i'm trying to decide if i want to re-tip, or go with something else.

A friend of mine is going to cut me a great deal on a Technics 1200...I was wondering how much good cartridges cost for those. Anyone?

I need to get a new one or fix my old one. I broke the arm trying to adjust it so the record's sound wouldn't degenerate as the music played. is it cheaper and more efficient to buy a new turntable or just get my old one fixed?

Right now I'm using a cheap Sony usb turntable. I'm working on fixing up an American Audio VTD-1000 to replace it shortly. If anybody out there has a tone arm counterweight that would work with this PM me it's all I need for it to be in working order.

Shure M44 series cartridges are excellent value. To me there was no audible difference to my previous, more expensive, "audiophile" cartridges. Another pro is that they are more durable and I have noticed they track better at a low tone-arm weight.

I've got two turntables up and running right now, both Technics SL-B2s, old belt-driven models from the 80s I think. They were both cheap or free. I'm running one in my living room with an Ortofon OM cart/stylus through a Technics SA-505 receiver and a pair of Fisher speakers. It sounds great, but I'd like to experiment with some different speakers and styli sometime when I get some extra dough.

The other one I have in the bedroom, I just hooked it up the other day. It's got one of those cheap Audio Technica "universal" carts/stylus running into a Technics SA-202 receiver and some crappy speakers a friend gave me simply to complete the setup. It sounds like ass because the speakers are so horrible, but at least I can listen to LPs and drink beers in the bedroom while my girlfriend watches "House" on TV in the living room...

Anyway those old Technics receivers that I have are totally kick-ass, they sound good, are really inexpensive and are bomb proof. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an affordable stereo setup.

i dj and scratch and the sound quality on this cartridge is amazing. the best ive ever heard. got an amazing low end. i know many other people who use this cartridge exclusively for listening.

tell me why a cartridge designed for DJs wouldnt have good sound quality? this is performance grade made for huge systems and speakers and also pounds the shit out of headphones for personal listening.

Where can I get some Tr00 slipmats, comrades? I'm bored of the generic Stanton slipmat which comes with my TT.


By the way, I use a cheap, but reliable and Die Hard Stanton turntable! Connected to an old Sony Music System from 1977.
