Thank you for the response. I'm definitely a newbie, so I am happy for the questions.
Marantz 6370Q turntable. I bought it new back in the day.
I also need a cartridge. I'm thinking about a grado MM, maybe a/ Green3 Prestige 3 Series
Never never listen to mono, old London or 78
One option for price might be to wait until I can afford a Decware phono stage.
Thanks again, Brian
