    Having had an ML, and sold it, I would go ART 9, but I prefer the AT house sound.

    You need to try and hear both to see which you prefer. Cartridges are a personal choice. One man's meat is another man's poison, and all that...

    Steve, Something you might want to consider is the ART is reportedly a tricky set up, https://www.audioasylum.com/audio/vinyl/messages/115/1159507.html , the ML I tried was very good and easy to setup.
    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    Analog Inputs:
    Pro-Ject Signature 10 TT & arm
    Benz Micro LP-S, Michel Cusis MC, Goldring 2500 and Ortofon Rondo Blue cartridges
    Hitachi FT5500 mk2 Tuner

    Digital:-
    Sony 3d blu-Ray for CDs to Caiman SEG
    RaspberryPi/HifiBerry Digi to Beresford Caiman SEG DAC
    Buffalo NAS Drive

    Amplification:-
    LFD MMC special phono stage & Rothwell MCX SUT
    ALLNIC T1500 MKII SET 300B amp
    Schiit MAGNI 3 Heresy amp

    Output:
    Wilson Benesch Vector speakers
    KLH Ultimate One Headphones

    Cables:
    Furutech AG-12-R4 High Performance Phono Cable
    Eccose Conductor CA1
    Belden 8402 with Switchcraft 3502A Audiophile High-End RCA
    Chord Epic speaker leads, & signature links


    I think I am nearing audio nirvana, but donít tell anyone.

    Surely the most useful input would be from those who have experience of both? Otherwise it's just a voting contest
    Cheers, Jeff
