Can't afford the Scout 2 (I just missed my financial window to get a base Scout, sadly), but I love my PTG/II! Color me jealous!

Sorry for bumping an older thread but I'd like to ask the OP why they are cynical about high end MC cartridges.

Progmeister,

I am very curious as to which "high end" moving coil cartridges you are referring to? I have not heard, nor read, the AT33 PTG/II being referred to as a slayer of high end moving coil carts, though it might be. In most instances, we get what we pay for. I am also not saying there are not good moving cartridge values available.
