RE: Cart for my new TT-VPI Classic 3

Batman, I have a JMW10.5i on my beefed up Scout. Not exactly your configuration, but....

I have a Sumiko Celebration II (my 2nd one), which I love, but it's a bit out of your target price.

I also have a Grado Statement Reference that was about $1500 new. I also love it - no "Grado hum" problems, warm lush midrange, solid bass (maybe a WEE bit heavy in the bass), nice highs. Tracks well, good soundstage, etc. For a while, VPI was offering JMWs with pre-mounted Grados, so that's some kind of "endorsement".

Finally, I have an extra armwand on which I mounted an Ortofon Quintet Mono (about $525) for mono recordings. Harry more or less endorsed this when I posted a question on the VPI forum. I LOVE IT. If you have a fair amount of mono recordings, you might want to look at it.
