    Many thanks for all the suggestions and messages, lots of food for thought, hopefully have the new turntable in place in the next week or two depending on availability and listening tests.
    Regards

    I must have got lucky bck in March. I picked up a Mint Brinkmann Bardo with glass platter, clamp and SU upgrades for £2.5k. Got a local engineering firm to open out the 20mm Brinkmann arm hole in the armboard to 23mm, popped in my OL Encounter 3C and couldn't be happier, it's definitely a destination deck for me and I've arrived early.
    Have a look on hifi shark as there's usually a few Brinkmann decks available.

    Will hopefully have this sorted out in the next week, having spent the last couple of weeks around the house with a new roof being installed. Looking back through the posts, a couple of people suggested keeping the turntable and upgrading the arm and cartridge. Interestingly Audio Origami is probably the closest hifi “dealer” to me and after a chat with John who suggested a PU7 and Dynavector XX2 would work well, so will have list to that combo early next week. Should be interesting and not the cheapest option.
    Regards

    Before you opt for that unless you like it have a chat with Hugo at Ammonite Audio, a reed tonearm with Phasemation PP-300 might be a very good option. Or even a JELCO with Pp-500.

    Will do Adrian, the advantage of Audio Origami is that he is 25 minutes away but I won’t be making any rash decisions, as this I hope will be last turntable change.

    Trouble is as I have discovered, TTís, arms and cartridges all have a sonic signature and some work together and others just donít, if you can find as as possible neutral arm then you have a chance of balancing the setup with cartridge. I donít know the signature of your TT but you might find some choices exaggerate it and other compliment. It also completely depends on what is pleasant to your ear as well.

    Buying a new car is easier than changing turntables.
