I always preferred tangential trackers over radial trackers. Still have a B&O 4002 and MCC20CL (one of the best Moving Magnet [if you can call it that] cartridges at the time IMO - outstanding on voice) and a matched pair of Pioneer PL1000As, modified for remote control. I was most taken with the Revox (already had owned a A77MkIII, A700, B77, B226) but never quite got to buying one.
I might be showing showing my age but IMO no one including B&O ever made a more elegant turntable than the 4002, pity the coating on the control pad wears off. Those late B&Os had that (unique to turntables?) eddy current motor for the turntable which was intriguing.
The Pioneer's linear tracker is a very nice piece of engineering but I had to rewire the audio cables through the chassis the originals were very disappointing. I used the Pioneers for A-B testing cartridges - I really hated cartridges, never found one that I was totally happy with - even before they went wrong. That is why I like digital, no suspensions to fail in my sub-tropical climate.
