I don’t have the money to chase specific high end gear. For me it has been more of coming across some very nice tables by chance and upgrading that way. A couple summers ago I came across a beautiful SOTA Star Sapphire table with a Eminent Technology air bearing liner tonearm. Found it at a garage sale, came with a Monster Alpha Genesis 1000 cartridge mounted and a brand new spare Lyra Lydian Beta cartridge. I don’t think I’ll stumble across anything better for a while, but you never know!
