Finally got the cart. mounted and aligned, and........about five seconds into Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks" I am saying to myself: "Wait, this has never sounded this clear and precise". And I have had a few high-end carts. Reviewers seem to say 50 to 100 hours to completely settle in, so I am sitting in my music room, volume set really low, reading a good science fiction book, playing records as fast as I can.
Life really is Good. Thank you for the recommendation and the price.
