Hi all, first post!
My rig is the AS Samba, a very easy rig to set up and live with. WAF is high plus it looks the business without being monumental or imposing, most importantly it IS the business at the eardrum. Arm is RB250 with CW and Cardas rewire. I've previously owned Technics SL-1200 and SP-10MKII, Regas, a mint vintage Marantz DD that was left on the street for garbage collection (oh the humanity!) and others not worthy of mention. I can't see myself parting with the Samba. Upgrades
Custom Blu-Tac tuning by Bostik, the improvement is substantial.
Edit: ken.nelson I had that deck. The best matched cart I tried with it was a Garrott KT3, the purple one. Use cork in place of the stock rubber mat and this deck although rumbly really sings.
