    Your description of the Andy McNally Unipivot sounds similar to the presentation I get from my VPI 9T Unipivot. Lots of air, space and big soundstage.

    Interestingly VPI sells both Unipivot and Gimbal bearing tonearms but I believe the Unipivots sound better but are not favoured by a lot of folk due to their wobbly nature!
    Main system : VPI Scout 1.1 / JMW 9T / 2M Black / Croft 25R+ / Croft 7 / Heco Celan GT 702

    Second System : Goldring Lenco GL75 / AT95EX / Pioneer SX590 / Spendor SP2

    Theyíre a bit scary at first, wobbling about and the fact thereís no real resistance when I lift it up except for vtf. Iíve put my VM-750 back on, definitely better with MM carts. I was going to buy another for my new TT project, but Iíll put my Audiomods V on that.
