I just completed a review of the TTWeights turntable add-ons for the Oct issue of AffAudio. Not super cheap but definitely a worthy addition to a good rig -- I added one of their copper/carbon TT mats and nickel plated periphery ring to my VPI Aries to great effect. That these additions have caused me to spend far more hours now listening to vinyl (Howard Roberts jazzin' it up as I type) is proof enough. These make me want to play more records, and that's what it's all about. The money spent here will outlive any cartridge of twice the price in this rig.
Currently handling basic feed from my CD player to my preamp and from my pre to my Spectron monos are sets of Morrow Audio interconnects, with speaker cables to be added in shortly. More on these as the process unwinds.
