I am planing to upgrading my TT from a Thorens 320 with a Ortofon 2m Black cartridge. The two tables that I am look at are a Nottingham hyperspace with a SME VI iv tonearm set up by Brian at The Analog Room in San Jose Ca. The other turntable is a VPI Signature Classic 3 also set up by a VPI dealer. Both are a used display models. For now I will use the Ortofon 2m Black cart.. Eventuality I will find a mc phono preamp and cartridge that will match the turntable I pick.
I have a good medium base system that the turntable with be a noticeable improvement. I do have an extensive audiophile grade vinyl collection that is continuously improving.
I usually put my favorite lps on 10.5" R2R or cassettes so that I can preserve my lps, but I love to listen to my vinyl.
At the moment I am leaning towards the Nottingham because of the SME tonearm. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks
