I use Sumiko Blackbirds and Blue Point Specials, but you might want to stick to Moving magnet cartridges until you get the hang of them, Ortofon makes good ones, but a nice cheap one is a Shure M97XE I had one on a Rega P3 I had, and it was pretty good for a <100$ cartridge. Remember to buy and use Stylast! www.needledoctor.com
If you wanna get REALLY crazy, get a Linear tracking arm, you can pick up an older Eminent Technologies ET series arm (most likely an ET-1 maybe an ET-2 but that will run you more) for under $500 if you are patient
I'm saving for a Trans-fi arm myself, cause I don't feel like spending $2,500 for an ET2.5
And if you want to see my dream table, here it is;

Click on hall of fame, then Sirius, I can get one of those for under $10,000

I was hoping to use this thing as an amp for my Xbox 360 to use headphones with it. Unfortunately, it sounds like crap. There's quite a bit of bass (which isn't so bad) and the sound is really rattly. I have a FiiO E5 on its way that should hopefully work. The fact that it's portable is a nice added bonus.

My project debut iii in action.. Sorry for bad video quality, camera phone alert (sound is pretty decent though) If you're wondering what the banging noise is. It's someone washing the dishes on the background

So glad to see that the Speak & Spell is still listed as "Important Audio Gear" in your book "Correct! Now spell Stupendous"

I wish the records would become less instead of more... you can't imagine the hassle moving those 300-400kg of vinyl when painting the room.

It went up to 37°C lately - it's insanely hot here. Me living on the top floor of the building, right under the roof (without AC) doesn't help either.
