The TT is only one part of a vinyl system, and it is the combination of 3 elements that will give you what you want. sure, the TT is the source, so to speak, and without a good one the others aren't quite as valuable. But even with a good TT you won't get what you want unless the phono stage can deliver. And to make that happen the cartridge needs to deliver as well. Then, and only then, does the TT need to be good enough to let the other two do their best.
