I recently upgraded my turntable from my trusty Project RPM 6.1, which was no slouch, to something a lot more substantial.
The new turntable is a Pro-Ject RM 10.1. The cartridge is a Dynavector 20X2. The difference has not been subtle. More space, more sizzle, more focus, more dynamics, more accuracy. More of everything you expect from a quality turntable.
I’ve been listening to records I know intimately over again. I swear, it sounds like Sonny Rollins is actually in my living room.
