    I have 2, a Project 6.1 (not RPM 6.1) with a Jelco tonearm and Pickering XV-15/625 cartridge. My backup is a Phillips 312 with a modified platter. I added some sound deadening tape inside the platter. .. and replaced the original mat with a heavy rubber NAD mat. It made a big difference in sound quality. The cart for that is being replaced...

    Currently have a Technics SL-D2 for my bedroom,
    Garrard LAB-80 MK II for the basement,

    and in storage,
    a Technics SL-Q200 and
    Pioneer PL-112D.

    I also have two BSR 200 BAX turntables that I'd like to toss out the window. Those things are nothing but trouble. I only bought them for the cartridges, anyway.

    Rega Planar 3 from the eighties. Just changed the cart to a Ortofon Bronze and have been blown away by the step up in playback. Now considering changing to a different TT or carry on down the upgrade route.

    Any suggestions for a cartridge and needle for a Pioneer PL-15D-II?

    Well I have seen the stylus in the 150-175.00 range, not sure what the cartridge would cost. Would like to spend about $250.00 total?

    What I've found with so called "better...micro line,shibata" type styli is the more pronounced treble response. Hence system matching is to be considered greatly,you don't want to be adding this if your system isn't bass heavy. Not too much of an
    issue if one can remedy other ways ie speaker positioning though.Just my thoughts from experience.

    I have only one, a Technics SL-1300. Well, actually two as I have another 1300 I bought for parts a few years back as it was just too cheap to pass up as an insurance policy. If I played a ton of vinyl, I'd probably buy a brand new TT however.

    Two of these. I have had the one in the photo for about 38 years. I bought it with the SME 3009 but like the BW much more.

    I just bought my first one a few weeks ago. Sanyo TP-1020. I bought it to play my Dad's LPs. I used to listen to them on his Dual when I was a teenager. I am eyeballing the U-turn Orbit. IMG_20180103_014450.jpg

    Your Sanyo is probably a better machine than the u-turn orbit. It has better specs, the counterweight is actually calibrated, cue device isn't optional, has a strobe light, a removable headshell, has auto stop
