Your responses to my last post have inspired something of an analogue renaissance for me!
They have also allowed me to work out a few things.....
I have extended my budget (bonus just come in!) so that I can afford a well set up local dealer sourced (used) LP12 and I will put in the work needed to maintain the table.
My dilemma is choice of tonearm....
Has anyone heard the Naim Aro vs other tonearms (particularly Linn offerings)? From all I've read I think I'd really like the Aro though I don't think I'm going to get the opportunity to do a side by side. I like the idea that it will be a little less forward (bright) than Linn arms....any views out there?
What new cartridge choices would you look at to go with either arm? Moving Coil to match a Linn Linto phono stage.
Budget around $500.
Thank you for your patience with my turnaround but the analogue bug bit hard once I started listening and though I preferred the Rega P3 to most CDP' I now know what is available through higher level tables and am prepared to put both $$$'s and time into making it happen.
The rest of my system is all Linn...5103 preamp, active 5140 speakers and a Melodik sub (huge and very musical!)
Thanks for your time, Peter.
