I'm overhauling my 21 year old Rega Planar 3. I've still got the original Elys cartridge, and as I bought a CD player shortly after the TT, the needle is hardly worn. Still I think a change might be a good idea after 21 years.
My main candidates are a new Elys, or the similarly prized Ortofon 2M Blue. I might even consider the cheaper 2M Red.
There's no way whatsover I'll buy anything more expensive. I use the Planar only to play old LPs that's not available in digital formats, and growing up during the LP era, I've got no illusions about analog sound quality.
Any thoughts, tips or (preferably) experiences?
