The solo Crystal Oval phono cable is excellent! You should try one!

Hi, newbie here.....

I'm currently running an Xpression mk2 with Ortofon 20 stylus and speed box into an Arcan FMJ A39 and KEF Q5 speakers.

Also have an Arcam CD player, CA DAB tuner and Yamaha mini disc player.

Thinking of upgrading the turntable at some point, but am not too sure as yet.

Any suggestions would be great.......hahaha

System components (with the exception of interconnects) all purchased during the past three years as "customer return, open box-mint" or "refurbished by manufacturer" from authorized dealers for under $1.5K:

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit DC SB w/Qup
Ortofon 2M Red cartridge
AmazonBasics RCA Audio Cable
KEF iQ30 Speakers on D.I.Y. Stands
Monster Cable S600Thx w/Time Correct Windings
Onkyo TX-8050 Receiver
Onkyo C-7030 CD Player
Arcam rDAC
Monster MC 400DCX-1M Advanced Performance Digital Coaxial Cable


40 years ago as a new college grad I purchased new for more than $2K the following from a local hi-end shop:

Philips GA-312 Turntable
Grado (can't recall model) cartridge
Onkyo T-4 Solid State AM/FM Stereo Tuner with Servolocked Tuning
Harmon Kardon Citation 12 Power Amp
SpectroAcoustics Preamp
Soundcraftsman RP-2215R Graphic Equalizer
JBL L50 speakers
Generic Interconnects

The newer system, at 1/10th the cost (adjusted for inflation) blows the old system away sonically in terms of noise floor and sound-stage definition. Vintage may be easy on the eyes and fun to collect; however, the new gear IMHO is far superior.
