  1. Just a quick update... Technics SL1200GR arrived.. VM540ML cartridge arrived... decided to not get Rega Fono MM Mk3 but instead bought a Schiit Mani direct from USA.. Mani was the last piece and it arrived today .... all I can say is I'm blown away with the difference to my old set up. The old set up was not crap but this is just in a different league. The definition and clarity coming from the system is phenomenal.. It feels great when you spend a fair chunk of cash and you get an even better result than you hoped for. Anything I have played so far, Jazz, Rock, Electronica, Classical just rocks.. Happy Days.. 😁
  2. Also just picked up a Shiit Mani as an alternate phono stage...looking forward to see what the difference is between that and the Fono Mk3
  3. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions! I ended up getting a great deal on a new Technics SL1200GR. Have also decided to pair it with a Rega Fono MM mk3 and a VM540ML cart. Looking forward to hooking it all up. Now i just need to buy some good quality RCA connectors with an earth wire..
  4. Hi all, Keen to get your views on what is the best sub $3K TT (new only-without cartridge). I appreciate the other elements (amp, speakers. phono stage etc.) all have an impact but putting that aside I am keen to get views on what you see as the best bang for buck TT at the moment in the sub $3K range. I am really keen on a Technics SL1200GR but would love to hear from anyone with any alternate suggestions.
  5. Thanks to everyone for their comments. It's great to see(read) eveyones passion.
  6. Thanks for your comments. I just wasn't sure whether the extra info on a SACD played through a SACD player would be significantly noticeable coming through just two speakers. I was of the impression you would notice more in a 5.1 channel type set up. If I was to get the player I was thinking of running it through my Audiolab 6000a integrated via digital coax cable and straight out to my two awesome sounding transmission line speakers. Just curious if it would sound better than the same disks being played through my Audiolab CD transport? Mainly for jazz, fusion and female vocalists.
  7. Will there be much difference between a CD & SACD in a 2 channel traditional stereo set up? I have some hybrid SACD's and don't know if it is worth getting a SACD player or just keep listening to them on my Audiolab CD transport. Keen to hear your views.
  8. That’s exactly the logic so far.. I would prefer a Japanese built unit but I’m yet to hear of anyone saying the Malaysian built versions are inferior. I can use the extra cash on upgrading the stylus if needed.
  9. Thanks for the comments!! I am leaning to the Technics SL1210 mk7 for $1600 at storedj. Any comments would be welcome?? PS: I’m surprised that no one mentioned Rega, or Project or Clearaudio..
  10. I’m keen to get some views on what would be a worthwhile upgrade from an AT LP120 turntable with an upgraded Hyper Elliptical stylus. I’m keen on staying with MM cartridges and looking to spend up to $2k. Amp and speakers are high quality but I am unsure if the extra spend would make a demonstrable difference. Keen on some views and suggestions on TT’s that would be worth considering.
  11. Installed the Jico hyper elliptical stylus today and as nkoulban said WoW.. I am glad I listened to his and Douglas HI-FIs advice.. huge difference...thanks for the tip! 😎
  12. Now I am also keen to get rid of the preamp from the at-Lp120. Just not that keen on doing it myself
