Default Kofi Annan in: "UpGrado Haiku"

OK-- I know that I've a few this evening and all, but I think its about time you engineers had a real challenge. Sure, I could go ahead and simply ask if I should upgrade my phono cartridge and I know I'd get a lot of great answers.

This particular evening, however, finds your Kofi Annan with a little too much booze left over from last night's party and he's feeling creative.

So here's the deal:

I will ask questions concerning the upgrade of my phono cartridge in Haiku and you will all respond in kind. Its your standard 5-7-5 syllable structure-- no big deal for guys who have studied the effects of secondary emission on pentode constant current sources, right?

You're allowed to have multiple Haikus in your response, but they must all adhere to the 5-7-5 rule. Violators will suffer the unfortunate fate of having a Mrs. Annan Jell-O mold sent to your residence. Parcel post, no less.

OK. Here goes:

Got some monoblocks
Single-ended 2A3s
Foreplay line stage too

Grado Black is nice
Musical, sweet and lovely
Could be sweeter, though

Grado Green: maybe...
What about the Gold? Could be...
Advice is needed

TT is a nice
Thorens TD one-sixty
Needs a proper mate

Kofi's at a loss
Building Thorsten's Phono Pre
What cartridge is best?

Could go as high as
One-hundred fifty U.S.
For a new MM

Kofi
