What a rabbit hole... RIP free time.
I’m afraid of this kind of black hole
It looks like we’re local to each other. PM me if you need help setting up your table or any other analog advice. Lots of good record stores in B’more!

Please, please, take it easy and enjoy the music! If turntables and LPs are about anything, that is it.
OK, if you are having to put together the pieces of a new setup, there is going to be some techie time. When that is over, go for pleasure, not nervosa!
I get that. Really! But for now I'm really looking forward to how much I've got to learn about the world of turntables. I've never had so many adjustable bits and little decisions before.
Hmmm.... Have fun.
But I'm kind-of glad that I could never afford that kind of turntable!
Just remember that you'd probably make some mistakes along the way and its okay. I did a lot of them, but you learn!
The issue with carts is usually the price usually dictates higher resolution. The hard part is just deciding if your sound signature, but decide on a cart budget first and find carts that fit what you like. Alignment actually makes little difference to the sound except for IGD.
That's what I've been learning. I ended up buying a nagaoka mp-110 since it seems to be reviewed as a good all-rounder @ $100 and was name-checked by schiit. Probably down the road once I've spent more time with the system I'll be able to understand what I like or want.
I was looking into alignment because I've never dealt with that before-- all other tables I've used didn't have the ability to configure that.
The Nagaoka's are a bit warmer sounding, but good trackers. Alignment is set and forget it, so nothing to really play with once you get the process down. The Sol will be different for sure with that single pivot point as there can be camber issues, so it might take a bit of back and forth at first.
