  10. You can pick-up the Project Debut Carbon with Ortofon 2M Red for $586. https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/product/pro-ject-debut-carbon-turntable-with-ortofon-2m-red-cartridge/ I had this as my first TT for about 3 years and never had any hum issues either. I know some earlier Pro-Ject TT's had hum issues, but this fixed when they did the switch from AC to DC motors. If it hums, as @Jebediah said, just return it. Alternatively: Rega RP1 on sale for $499 - https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/product/rega-planar-one-turntable-carbon-cartridge/ Rega RP1 Plus (if you want a built in MM phono stage) for $588 - https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/product/rega-planar-one-plus-turntable/ Project Debut Carbon Esprit with Ortofon 2M red for $722 - https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/product/pro-ject-debut-carbon-esprit-sb-turntable/https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/product/pro-ject-debut-carbon-esprit-sb-turntable/ Rega RP2 for $760 - https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/product/rega-planar-2-turntable-carbon-cartridge/ Alternatively if you can up your budget a bit, there's also the Pro-Ject Classic at $999 - https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/product/pro-ject-the-classic-turntable/ The one from WestCoast Hifi is fitted with a Ortofon 2M Silver Cartridge, the cartridge alone probably makes up most of the difference in price. The 2M silver kinda sits between the Red & Blue. The stylus is based on the 2M Red, but it has silver plated copper coils, the same coil wire material as in the 2M Bronze and Black models. 2M Silver is essentially an upgrade to Red, but just below the 2M Blue. Now, West Coast HiFi's not always the cheapest, so you may even snag a better deal here and there, or possibly even use them as a pricematch since they ship free across Australia. Just some options anyway.

  12. Yep, definitely get in touch with the supplier. I turn my 6005 on from standby the same way you descriped in the OP, have been doing this for 3 years that I've had the amp and never had any issues.
