Very cool setup. The cartridge case is great! I love how it displays them like small piece of art.
Thanks! I wanted to display them and keep them safe and clean. I looked up a couple of pro made ones after I posted that image above, and was shocked by how unattractive [some] and expensive they [all] are.
MPSchenck, your entire system is a classic example of what can be done for a relatively small investment, yet end up with sound that no doubt smashes the price/performance barrier. IMO one of the coolest little systems I've seen.
Thanks! I will say that the speakers cost roughly what the all the other equipment combined cost minus the TT cartridge, a Denon DL-110, and "budget" AudioQuest cables.
Somebody looking to save some money wouldn't have to opt for the Omega upgrade finish. Also, there are some really great less expensive cartridges, and everyone says cables are the last thing you should upgrade.
I haven't actually heard any super elite expensive systems, but now I don't really care, mine set up sounds great to me. And really, that's all that matters.
