I am after some nice sounding Cart/Stylus for my Technics decks, I hear these sound great.
Technics SL1200 MKII > Ortofon 2M Blue > Cambridge Audio 540p>Pioneer A400 >Pioneer PD S801 > Mission 753
Are you wanting the cart for mainly hifi, or DJ use?
Sources: Technics SL1210Mk2 with Denon DL110/AT-95E, Mac Mini, Virgin V+.
Amplification: Cyrus 2.
Speakers: Mordaunt Short MS20i Pearls with Fisual Super Pearl 2.5mm cable.
Other kit: More than I should have. My loft is creaking.
Hi, DJ Use, I am after good quality sound first & foremost. I wont be doing any back spins. Thanks
I would probably suggest one of the Ortofon OM Pro carts, if it needs to be for DJing.The main reason for this is whilst the standard OM carts (like the 5E) will sound a little more balanced and detailed, it tracks at a much lower weight, meaning it will be more prone to jumping out of the groove when people are dancing around, and the bass bins are doing their thing.If it's for home/studio DJing, then I would stick with a Hifi cartridge, with the OM5E / Audio Technica AT-95E / Goldring Elektra being good starting points around £35, then to the Ortofon 2M Red and AT-120E at around £70, then the 2M Blue / AT-440ML at around £120.Hope this helps...
I will have a look at some of those you have suggested but not a fan of Ortofon, I have a few of those around, just cant get on with them. I wont be using the them for gigging more for the later
