Looking for turntable and tonearm- person to set up and adjustment- anyone can recommend me. I dont have the tools and equipment to do the job- dont intend to spend money on it but rather pays someone to do it.

If it is a LP12, I can recommend one wholeheartedly.

Welcome to the vinyl world, Macrotrust.
You will soon be further poisoned down the road.

If you are already enjoying Nagaoka MM, I cannot imagine if you start using MC cartridge.

Try this

This poison is very expensive- imagine the NAGAOKA JN-P 500 Replacement needle is US$263 which lasted 150-200 hours or 6 months whichever is earlier. This one not bad

MC cartridge- which cost many times- sure will go broke- furthermore need to buy MC step up transformer to match my phono amp- that is another set of problem. Further more many LP are pre owned- or old LP the wear and tear even greater.

So come poison me which MC cartridge and MC step up transformer to recommend. Anyone. not looking into exotic MC cartridge which cost many thousand. something reasonable that can last- pending how many playing hours.

Vinyl is a luxury item- given the cost is high- which made me think very hard for a long time to come back to Vinyl. Used to play in the past- every few months  need to change needle. For those who are begining to wonder should u get into Vinyl- maybe start with an entry set up- with needle of 100-300 should be go enough to get by.

Alternatively set up your digital properly as to get the best out of it. Getting digital right also not cheap too- given the electronic chain to get the best possible sound. Even if you upgrade to a better DAC- u will face another set of problem too- that is why the law of diminshing return will come in- increase the performance at a decreasing rate of return- incremental return is low given the extra cost to expend.

Actually digital is good - test the below track- not far away or close fight with Vinyl.

Some shiok track to blast your music.

That makes me wonder whether open reel is a better way to go.

The reel tape wear rate is very fast

Very much depend on tape quality and head alingment and of course proper storage.
One may be looking at 100 to 250 plays

I don't think you need to change cartridge every 200 hours. I would say rule of thumb is about 800 hr for most brands. If not, many people who play TT will go broke - fast.

I'm also wondering why your MM stylus replacement is so expensive. You can get the popular top of the line Hana MC for $980.
