Its time for an upgrade on my TT, i do like the Marantz ( with Virtuoso wood ) and the sound it gives me but im looking for a bit more. Id like a little bit more detail but what i really want is more scale and dynamics, i want it to sound bigger, fuller with more emotion. I know this is a tall order and the biggest issue with buying a TT is that im limited in audtioning and also no home trials are possible as with speakers/amps etc.
My thoughts at the moment are
VPI classic with cartridge to be decided
Rega P7 or P9, but i dont like the write ups of the Rega cartridges
For cartridges i like the idea of the Shelters or the Ortofon moving coils
Any thoughts appreciated
