This is such a nice looking deck that I had to bump it to the next page.

Speaking of which, I wonder how the new remasters will turn out? Seriously though if/when I can set aside the sizable budget to go analog I really want the Scout or Scout II. My problem will be matching the cart and phono pre with it as I fall on the more analytic than musical side of preferences.
I agree! My dad had it when I was growing up and I used to play it all the time. This one is a new 180 gram remaster.
That carbon fiber tonearm of yours would look good over it...
Thanks to all. And a wallet that's about to create mutiny.
I've only heard the original LP. It's not in the best shape but sounds better than the CD. I should pick up that 180-gram remaster. Brass instruments sound the best on vinyl. It's as if The Tijuana Brass was actually in the room with me.
An NAD PP-2i. Nothing fancy, but it definitely gets the job done. What are your experiences with phono stages and this cartridge?
I've had mine for many years, in fact I just looked at the receipt and it says 8/27/98, and I got it for $331! I think the guy rang me up for a Prestige.
Back then while I was in college I paired it with an Anthem Integrated 1, the baby Sonic Frontiers company. I used it with speakers. Then I borrowed a Sonic Frontiers phono amp and that set the standard. Then I went to a Rega Brio integrated, and just listened to the music instead of worrying about equipment. The Brio powered B&W 302 speakers and I was loving it.
Now, I'm considering a PS Audio GCPH. I keep reading it's great, and great for the money, and the next step up is considerably more money.
Thank you for the compliment and it does sound great as well. I thank AudioGon for bringing the entire country to your doorstep.
