    Will do, although after this evening's listening, I am more and more convinced there's something beautiful happening with the Kontrapunt and the Wizard phonostage. The Ortofon T-5 SUT Plugs are in the signal path and for the negative press, they are doing a magnificent job.

    I think it's more likely than not that this will be purchased and my search will be over. Same with the phonostage, TT, Tonearm, cables and speakers.

    Listening to Sergeant Pepper, it all brought realism and depth. Listening to Duke Ellington - Summertime, and my son looked concerned in the opening bars, when quizzed he said "It's scary music" he was refering to the rather dramatic opening trumpet and drums, he "felt" it rather than hear it.

    Im getting surprisingly good results from an AT OC9 MK11 in am Alphason HR100MCs on my venerable Cranfield Rock. It may be that it is just suited to the damping arrangemet (Ive had an original OC9 and an AT33PTG in the same combo)but Ive read about this cart being like elsewhere . One HFW journalist has or had one in his home reference system.
    Well within budget.
    (It followed a Cadenza Blue, another recommendation from me, and it is not losing out much at all.)

    No, I missed it but I do have the ST80SE which is supposed to be a perfect match for the Ti.

    I've heard those are extremely good Andy. Yet to get a listen to one though.

    3100 is a big ask, I have a friend who owns a HiFi store so I may get a discount!
