My first posting so please forgive any breaches of etiquette.  

I have a Garrard 301 with Audio Technica OC9, very basic phono stage which I am looking to replace, feeding an Audio Note Meishu valve amp driving some old ProAc supertower speakers.  I was considering investigating the Accession all in one MC stage but was wondering whether anyone had yet had a chance to compare its performance with an Accession MM stage and Elevator?  Is one arrangement more "tweakable" than the other?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum Jeremy.

A very interesting question, one that many of us are waiting to find the answer to Wink

Another welcome from me, Jeremy.

Yes, the Accession MC is waited with baited breath . . . ShockedTongue

The Accession (MM) + EXP route does of course give the option of using both high and low output cartridges, but if you're only a low-output user then, well . . .

Thanks for joining us Jeremy on the forum. It's not too late to join the UK queue for the Accession MC, I'll be first although I'll have listen through the burn-in period then send it out to the next person.

Bob's poimt about keeping the MM and MC options open is a good one. Moreover the Accession MM has switchable capacitor load options and the Elevator EXP has resistance loading options for MC so they should get the best out of either cartridge type. That has been my epereinmce in practice too!

I am interested in seeing the MC load options of the Accession MC.
