Good choice. I actually just bought an RM 1.3 Genie for the amount you saved on your demo 5.1 haha If you're looking for a replacement cart, I'd recommend the Ortofon OM40 Super in MM, or the Dynavector 10X5 (the one I personally use) in high-output MC.
Also start looking around for a good phono stage, and consider buying the pro-ject speedbox II. World of difference.
