My system currently consists of the following in a 13.5 x 17 ft room Quicksilver 6C33C triode monobloc amps, a Shindo Monbrison preamp, new K&K step up transformers, Merlin VSM-MX speakers, a tube rectified Modwright Denon 3910, Nottingham Spacedeck with the heavy platter with a Schroder 2 arm, Denon 103R in an ebony (uwe) body and Kubala Expression cabling. I am thinking about the new TW Acustic Raven one and cartridge recommendation in the $2-3K range. I know that Wayne Garcia apparently loved the Raven and I know that he also enjoyed the Transfiguration Phoenix.
I was wondering are there any other turntables in the Raven One's price range that anyone would recommend. Should I just get the separate power supply for the Nottingham? And most importantly what are the diferences between the Transfiguration Phoenix and the new Air Tight PC3. Or what are the differences between the Transfigurtaion Orpheus and the Air tight PC1 figuring the differences between the lesser models would be about the same. Are there any other cartidges that I chould consider. I tend toward the musical rather than absolutely neutral sound. Thanks.
