Other Notes on Turntable: " I cannot offer the table a higher recommendation. If you're getting into vinyl and you need a step-up in clarity on the player side, look no further than the VPI Traveler. You're getting a piece of the VPI magic at a fraction of its previous cost. It's like buying gold at silver's price. Happy listening everybody!" - PF
Other Notes on Cartridge: "The main advantage of high output moving coil cartridges is the elimination of any additional gain stages, resulting in an overall reduction of the noise floor. With 2.5mV directly driving a standard 47k Ohm RIAA phono stage, the best possible signal to noise ratio is realized. Nothing but music emerges from your most treasured recordings." -

Cosmetic Ratings - we're often asked "why is your numerical rating so low when the product looks great?" We tend to be very conservative when applying a cosmetic "rating" to products. Virtually nothing is a 10/10 unless it is nearly new and looks factory fresh. Our 8/10 is what a lot of people might call "mint".
