As the others have said, it HAS to be the Urika! It works so well.

I would suggest a new tone arm first - Aro or Ekos 2 would do nicely :D

It's all about what you are going to do and not what you can't ............... you will love the Radikal / Urika. They are both 'keepers' and the rest will look after itself, whenever that might be .............. :smt020

It's all about what you are going to do, not what you can't.

I didn't mention the Keel - the Kore would be fine and there are other sub-chassis if you must (although I wouldn't personally).

Yes the Radikal/Urika is great (and presumably you would inevitably want a Chord Sarum T cable (perhaps Kable I suppose) but the Prefix/Hicap is not the "bottleneck" imho, and your cartridge sounds great in an Ekos 2 8)

You need to listen and decide for yourself :smt023

Rewind on this. :roll:
Moved goalpost alert this is what happens when system signature not used then advise requested.
I had thought the basics were taken care of but it seems not. :oops:
Inside out is the rule of thumb I cheated slightly as I had the kore first then hit the Radikal Urika bundle deal.
But ever since then I realised the keel was the way to go depending on what level you want to take it to.
If your still using the Cirkus steel sub and armboard then your source is in comparison seriously compromised. :shock:
Decisions decisions. :smt017
