    Mint Decca Mk.III Elliptical.

    The word is 'valves' in this country, not tubes. Tubes are what Smarties come in!

    Wow, Barry... I didn't know you had so many cartridges!

    What's your favourite, or perhaps rather the one you reach for most (spends most time playing your records) - and has done most over an extended period of time?

    I don't mean your current favourite, but rather the one that you usually always return to after a period of change.

    Marco.
