Man that’s s good deal. Hi Fi News even pondered whether the ML/3 was only brought out to cut costs as the 2 on paper has done features that can be considered better.

The one I bought from Kirk should last me several years....but I couldn't pass the one at LP Gear up at it's current reduced price.
Like I said...it's always good to have a back up!

Good stuff. They also jacked the price on the ML/III.

HiFi News suggested the same. They guessed at cost cutting being passed off as improvements, without knowing for sure.

Well, for instance...only the $750 one has a MircoLine styli on it...and the tracking weight on all has jumped up to 2 grams. WTF?

I had forgotten that there's a whole new line with different tiers. It was the ML/3 that HiFi News had questioned as to whether or not it really was an improvement.

The fashion in tracking weights has gone up in recent years. These things can be a bit like women's hem lines...
