im about 99% sure ill be ordering the Project classic SB . I can get it for just over what my budget is/was lol unfortunately its over my budget because I cant seem to get one without the preinstalled cart . I will be using my Sumiko Amythest cart which has less the 80 hrs on it and to me has a better more open and richer sound with better bass then the Ortofon 2M Bronze I auditioned and leaps better the my 2m Blue . a small part of my decision is based on the classic look but I have heard the non SB classic which was dead silent in every way but with a 2m Silver(red) which to me is horribly bright . I think the Classic SB with my Sumiko Amythest cart and DS pre amp w/ vintage Sylvania tubes will provide me with the sound and quality im looking for in my budget and should be a pretty good upgrade to my current low budget TT .
Edit : I went ahead and ordered The Classic SB
