I agree with you about the new Audio Technica cartridges. I like moving coils and my favorite is the AT-ART7, which sells for $1090 from LP Gear.

I know that direct-drive turntables take the prize for speed accuracy and speed stability, but my new 3-phase belt-drive motor with tachometer speed control is nearly as precise as direct-drive. It's speed accuracy is just as good and its speed stability is very nearly as good as your Technics.

I also agree with you regarding digital. I, too, have switched from vinyl to digital because the sound quality of digital these days is just as good or even better than vinyl as far as I can tell. My favorite digital format is DSD. I make DSD128 copies of my favorite records and I love the sound of DSD256 from Native DSD.

Happy listening!
