Milty Zerostat - Questions
Have you cleaned your LP's? I find that the vast majority of crakles/pops go away after a good cleaning. This goes for new LP's too.After Zerostat treatment, I find that dust does not adhere to LP and anti-static brush will lift dust off easy. 
Milty Zerostat - Questions
I use the Zerostat the following way. LP NOT spinning. About 4-5" above LP, Slowly squeeze & release trigger on 2-3 different spots on LP. Then used anti-static brush. Seemed to work pretty well.

CD and SACD player under $500
You may want to look at a used Marantz DV Series player. I went from a Sony 222ES to a Marantz DV7001. Major improvment all around. I have also heard the DV8400, which is also a very nice player.

Naim CD5x, Marantz DV7001 (for SACD) and Squeezebox Duet with Cambridge DacMagic.Nothing compares to vinyl through my Basis 1400/Encounter MkIII/Ortofon Kontrapunkt b. 
Dolby True HD vs. DTS HD
To me, DTS-HD is a little more dynamic than Dolby True HD. But overall very close.As stated above, Night & Day difference between the older bitstream DD & DTS and the newer lossless formats. Sound was a big factor to me when going to Blu-ray. 
Signal Cable Spade Question
When I had an MC252, I found that banana plugs were much easier to use. The binding posts were a big PITA on that amp.

"Tape Out" is full output. Does not go through volume control. Volume cannot be adjusted. Do not use Tape Out. 
Whats the most you paid?
A friend of mine has spent up to $500 per LP for the so-called Hot Stampers from Better Records.These are just used records that have been "listened to" critically and are deemed the "BEST".Crazy world out there.
