Thanks for the recommendation. I never thought about this combination before and have been leaning towards an RP6 with Exact 2 cart, but am definitely going to read up on these 2 components you mentioned.

I have the RP6 w/ Ortofon 2M Black. Very happy.
Nah, this is mid-fi trying to be somebody.
Besides, I've been hip all my life.

for the record the new $30,000 vpi classic and $9,500 sota are made of mdf. albeit with a thick aluminum underpinning for the plinth.
I have a beogram rx2 and Mitsubishi lt-22 that will outperform todays $1,000 tables. I would not buy one now though! no parts anymore. you could get a lp-12 or something is great. then you have a good table and spend the rest on a preamp,cartridge etc. just make sure it completely works. or know how to fix it. the more common ones should still have parts. since I am into modding things that Cambridge preamp is pretty darn good afterwards. in new stuff it won't get you too far. maybe $3,500.
if you don't mind me asking, what phono pre amp do you use?
