  1. Try Phasemation PP1000 or PP2000. Superb. Very balanced and natural sounding cartridge. I had the PP1000 and now PP2000. At ur budget, may want to consider MY Sonic Lab cartridges. They are also maker of Air Tight, and may other cartridges. Extremely low impedance but with reasonable output. Very refined, transparent and detail. Expensive in Australia. Koetsu is stunning tonally but IMHO need to pair with exceptional sut, valve phono and pre to realise their potential. With ur budget u may even be able to have 2 good carts, with different tonality and
  2. They are very nice monitors. Had a pair for 15 years!
  3. I bought quite a lot of records from overseas in recent days. The warped record issue much more apparently last year. Due to covid packages seem to sit in warehouses, and worse delivery vans for longer than usual. Agreed with @crtexcnndrm99 that buying in bulk tends to lessen the problem. Generally when u play the record and the cartridge bouncing up and down there is a problem! Either allow to get it flattened via machine, some record store now offer this service. Or may have to return...

  14. U have lots of good advice already. There seem to be consensus that vintage tubes will always sound better (esp compare with new Chinese tubes) -Instead of looking for ‘the best’ tube, try to match ur tube with the amps, phono cartridge etc in ur system. Think both tonality and gain. Eg between 12AT7/ecc81 (mu60) to 12AX7/ecc83 (mu100) there are many variants , eg 5751 (mu70). Finding the appropriate gain help locate the ‘sweet spot’ in ur amps -listen for tonality that suit ur system. Many have already commented. European, British and American variants have different tonal
