Well,I can tell you that for about 8 years, I play with a Gramamp2 Communicator with PSU1
I do use a Michell TecnoDec and RB250 with Michell TecnoWeight (big improvement)

My cartridge is a Nagaoka MP110 (GBP 150?) and I just have my fourth stylus in use ;-)
So....I am very content with this combination!!

Oh yes and welcome to GSP

Thank you for joining us Charles. I have s Goldring 1042 fitted to the Origin Live Zephyr arm on my SL1210/II but it's more than £300 now The 1012 was pretty good too if that helps.

Thanks i was planning to get the technoweight so perhaps I split the budget and get a MP 110. Any platter mat suggestions currently on the glass as the old felt is static and hairy.thanks

Leather works well for me, although most say that a platter mat is not needed on a acrylic platter, but I find it give's me a smoother bass.

I tried leather but I still had a a lot of static. My platter is glass not acrylic. Is there any reason why using a matless glass platter is inadvisable ?
