the record spot
I came by a Systemdek IIX record deck a few days ago. I think it's an earlier model (serial number begins 88); teardrop shaped armboard, Moth RB250 arm and my query is what can I do to bring this deck up to spec today? Is it worth me taking the RB300 off my P3, or should I go for a rewire (sometime in the new year) from a company like Origin Live? Can I get away with putting on a new cartridge alone, or would the rewire be worth it? Not listened to it just yet, it doesn't have an earth wire but it does have an earthing terminal on the rear which I can connect a wire to the back of my amp (Marantz 6010-KIS). I know about the Goldring and Ortofon new models, but how about cartridges such as the DL103 or 110 MC (which can be fitted to a MM only amp)? I hear great things about those as well as other carts, so some suggestions would be welcome!
