You're choosing between a lower model integrated/stereo receiver and seperates???
You should be comparing better integrateds (Music Fidelity, Marantz Reference, Luxman, etc...) with seperates (Parasound Halo, etc...).
Spoke with a dealer; he has a demo Nottingham Spacedeck Jr.
He recommended some other cartridge or a Grado; he said to use the ZPhono for now (or he has a killer demo phono pre-amp).
Heavily considering on getting it; unsure about the cartridge.
