Just like to get general thoughts on this question, which of teh following approachs would you consider preferable and why ?
Lets assume you have $3000 budget for an analogue package
1 - $1500 TT and $1500 cartridge ?
2- $2500 TT and $500 cartridge ?
3 - $1000 TT and $2000 cartridge ?
Im sure you can see the intent of the question, how much of the quality of a complete TT package is down the table and how much is the cartridge. Not to to bias it to much my thoughts would be to one extreme or the other ie a Clearaudio Perfomance with a Denon DL103 R or say the Cleaaudio Emotion with say a Ortofon Kontrapunkt C both these options would be around $3,000
