If it's good enough for James Mitchell it's good enough for me. I've used it with various Sumikos (BP through Blackbird) and found it very satisfactory. Rewiring and bearing upgrades will probably provide marginal improvement, but nothing to sneeze at, even stock.

I have a Sumiko mmt / Koetsu Black on a juicy Oracle Delphi MkII (modify). Its perfect for my 5000 lps Im expecting to try a denon 103, for fun. But first i got here a satinM117g and a AudioQuest Mc-3 that i will try. On my Axial Triphonic speakers, it is awsome!!!

I have mine mounted on an old Sonographe Sg-3
and use it with an Ortofon super OM40 cartridge/stylus. It makes the extra money that I paid for the OM40 very worthwhile. An oldy but a goody. A good turntable too, simple and quiet.
