Hi VC:

Looking to upgrade from a Crosley I got for the holidays from my girlfriend a few years ago. Haven't played it in about a year, after learning how bad the needle is for the records. As of right now I am considering a U-Turn, just a matter of which Orbit:

As of right now I am considering the following:

U-Turn Orbit Basic

  • MDF platter and CN5625AL cartridge
  • Built-in preamp (added)
  • Cue lever (added)

U-Turn Orbit Plus

  • Acrylic platter and Ortfon OM5E cartridge
  • Built-in preamp (added)
  • Cue lever (added)

Going to pair either of these with the Audioengine A2+ Powered Speakers. Looks like the price will be $289 vs. $399 unless I get one of the wood plinths. Any Orbit owners have any input? Thanks!

Yeah, if you have the budget for the Plus then why not just get the Plus?  

Yep that and acrylic platter, I can't see any valid reason for not buying the plus if you can afford it so stop mucking about and buy the thing.

 

Aso avoid admitting to owning a Crosley at any time, "I started out with a vintage table that crapped out on me" always sounds much better.
