First table I owned was a Technics SL-23. Guy at the shop installed a Sure high track ( don't remember the # ) and I was in heaven! My first move into high fidelity vinyl. Pity that they are folding now as vinyl is making a huge comeback. I suspect labor cost is the problem.
IN REALITY IT ONLY MATTERS WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE TO YOU!!!!!
