The Dynavector 20, of course. The 17d needs proper matching and expert setup.
Those Grados need to go. Those are for beginners. Oops, there I go again.
Ok, not to be an ass, if you're thinking something like a Grado, go for the Cartridge Man. Far far better than a Grado. I think there's also a Nagaoka in that range. Very nice also.
I tend to be a contrarian (no surprise - after all, I do own an Amadeus), so I ignored your advice and bought a Grado Reference Master over the holidays. It's the last rev that looks like a cricket coffin, not the new version that just came out. It replaces the Reference Sonata I have been using. I ran across the old sales receipt several weeks ago and was surprised to learn it's been in service for 4.5 years already. Figuring 6-8 hours use weekly puts it at 1350-1800 hours use.
The cart swap was uneventful and I took the opportunity to re-level the table and dial in VTF, current at 1.58 grams. BTW, I use Allen key screws which make installation much easier than slotted screws.
So I have break-in ahead of me. Already I notice more dynamic presentation and improved 3D presentation. More later.
I plan to keep the Reference Sonata, might have SoundSmith retip it or put in new cantilever/stylus.
