I played same song same volume etc, on a rock, jazz, and rap song. For example, the half speed remaster of The Police - Roxanne (which btw that box set is amazing)... On the Uturn, it sounded great. Nice. Full. Deep. But maybe a bit muddied, which is hard to notice on its own. If nothing better came along, very enjoyable and would be totally satisfied. On the Fluance, all of the details jump out, but don't bury the underlying richness of the sound. Great soundstage. Does that make sense? Probably like upgrading a preamp?? Again, it could be the cart, but that cart alone in the US is over 200. It's almost a freebie or a $50 upgrade on that table with that pricepoint.
