Well, I went with the LP Gear 625E , and all I have to say is OMG! Once I got the thing to track properly, It provided a much fatter sound with electric music. I compared side by side my Steely Dan Gaucho LP with the OM 20 and the Pickering XV15/625E combo, and the Pickering was the clear winner. I'm planning on doing a comparison with some acoustic Jazz to see how the 2 stack up. I'll report back. I'm thinking either Ralph Towner Solstice or Oregon Music of another present era as a test bed.
