    Default a little advice needed

    On a previous thread I posted that I have one of the worst POS Denon tt out there.DP-11f. The main problem is that it has a spring loaded on/off button and all other switches are lit to the touch type. Adjusting seems fine,tracking the same but if I forget to push the button to turn it off it will power on indefinately ,get warm and if left on clearly warp an album. So I this add in C/L for this Dual tt w/ dust cover ,headshell but no cartridge for $75. My cart now is a Grado GF-3 w/ the screw and nut attachment. Is this an ok deal and would the Grado be a quick install knowing I'll be needing a better cart up the line. I have owned a Dual 1229 years in the past and loved it and have not inquired yet on this tt.

    don't know anything about those in particular but the they'll prolly take 50 or 60 and for that dough cant go wrong .I would just be concerned with cartridge /tone arm compatibility with regards to mass.

    Hate to say it, but any turntable under $150 is probably going to give you headaches of some sort. That is, unless you can find a deal and get into one of the higher end Technics or Yamaha direct drives, or find a deal on a simple belt drive fully manual table like a Rega, Thorens, Music Hall, NAD, etc. In general, I would stay away from the fully automated tables.
