Holmz Posted September 16, 2021 Share Posted September 16, 2021 Tone arm: I have an SAEC WE 3117 tone arm. I need a new weight and string, as the string broke… Or some ideas if it is good and if there are any advantages to consider changing? And who might carry parts for it.It always seemed like it work just fine (It sits on a SOTA Saffire) Preamp: I still have the PSE in a box and upgraded to an Audible Illusions Modulus (Via Randy in Santa Monica) ~20 years ago... It seems good to me, but is there any great reason to consider an upgrade? About all I would consider (off hand without thinking too hard) would be a Nagra Classic. Cartridge: A Blue Point Special… it has to be 10-15 years old… I did see that Audible Illusions has an upgrade scheme so I might call them, or email them. (And see if it does 230v, etc) - I don’t even know if it is MC or MM… But they do upgrades. - And I did pick up an Accoustic Research Phono stage from Randy, so I guess that answers part of whether it (AI) is MC/MM . Basically I need to overhaul/rehabilitate part of it in order to play the vinyl. 1. Who might carry the SAEC spares? 2. Thoughts on Pre/Phono stage? 3. Thoughts on cartridge? My AVR-Processor arrives in a few weeks, so that provides some chin scratching opportunities. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
