Default Innovation on the way (actually, it's here already)

I have an Innovation in the house! Universal tonearm and Lyra Kleos cartridge. Dealer is coming on Saturday to do the install and coronation. Report following soon thereafter.

It never ends. Every time I think I'm done, I get another idea . . . .

Congrats on your TT! How are you enjoying it?

Is the innovation upgradable to the master?

Jim.......Eight months and not a peep about your Clearaudio Innovation turntable with the Universal tonearm and Lyra cartridge. Did you forget about us interested members?
