Yes that is true. Give her 20-30 hours break in time and then you will see. My MP-200 sounds good right of the box but now after 30hrs sound really better.

I am by no means an "audiophile". I love music and I've always loved vinyl. I used to DJ using some second-hand SL-1200MK2's about 10 years ago but no longer - but I did keep one of them to play my records with. Really do love this turntable even though it is a bit beaten up.

I used a cheap cart (dare I say, I think it was some $50 Stanton thing) back when I DJ'd but now I have a Rega Elys 2 and it really does sound nice and produces a sound I never thought possible from my old 1200.

It's a very good cart, especially for the money.
