I am upgrading my system and am looking for a good value in turntables. Currently, I have a crappy Technics turntable that offends the senses in a variety of ways.
I have done my reading and am looking at the Pro-ject Debut III or xpression III. The reviews I read said that the stock cartridge is fine on both and not worth upgrading. If you plan to spend a bit more, get a speed box.
What else should I be looking for? Any suggestions? I am having a difficult time finding these to listen to so even a suggestion between them would be helpful. I am likely to buy from a dealer with a good return policy.
Thanks in advance for your help.
