An analogy every one will understand : consider your record player is a car. Your cart is an engine, your turntable is a chassis and your arm suspension system. They will happily sell you all three separately, resulting in a car that can do 400 km/h, provided the road is perfectly flat without a bump exceeding 1 mm . Because they either did not install any shock absorbers at all - or they are hopelesly mismatched for the actual resulting vehicle. The outcome of such a car in real world and its impact on the well being of its occupants and "innocent by-drivers" is unfortunatelly perfectly predictable and there is a reason why any DIY car has to past stringent atests in order to be allowed to be driven in normal traffic. You can and are allowed to do with your "phono car" whatever you please - including performing "Grado dance" - because you will be doing it on your records, not those belonging to those who sold you the equipment.. Which can and sometimes in extreme cases does culminate in yet more extreme phono sport - groove jumping. By the time any of the two appear, there is no longer anything like sound quality as we know and strive for left.
