    FS: Assemblage UJB-1 Jitter Filter and Sennheiser DSP Pro

    The Assemblage UJB-1 performs the same function as the very popular Monarchy DIP line of processors; in fact, the UJB-1 is, internally, the same as the Sonic Frontiers UltraJitterbug (hence the designation by Assemblage as UJB). A pretty piece of casing, the SF unit sells for at least $200...

    What's a good budget/shortlist for getting into vinyl?

    Ssportclay, come on. You had to have known that a turntable up there in years--a suspended design no less--would need some work, not of the expensive kind but work nonetheless. If you're not a tweaker, get the Scout 'cause it requires as little brainpower to operate and maintain as a CD player...

    Beogram RX

    Memepool's advice is excellent. I can't emphasis enough how stunningly good the B&O cartridges were, the saphire-cantilevered MMC-20CL and MMC-1/2 in particular, and all at less than two grams, a force that will barely keep a Grado in the groove. The later would fit your table and be underserved...

    Does anyone know what cartridge the rega P3 comes with?

    A cartridge isn't supplied by Rega. There are much better cartridges one could fit on the P3 than those Rega builds, so their omission is actually preferable to their sticking you with a nasty cartridge on top of an already astoundingly overpriced turntable (though with the three-point mounting...

    Record Cleaning Necessity?

    I just saw your post at the VA. You need to change your method of cleaning with your stylus still exhuming clods of dust. Record cleaning machine or not, you don't want to see that after each play. NGF
