I have a stanton 500 gold cartridge (500 AL i belieeve) identical to this one: http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/showthread.php?t=278245
i want to replace the stylus, but am massively confused about my options. As far as I can tell, there are two conical items which are intended specifically for it, but I understand that there are elliptical ones which will work well with it, even thought they weren't necessarily intended for th AL cartridge.
I'd prefer not to get a dubious quality dirt cheap generic replacement.
What are the trade offs between conical and elliptical?
Any suggestions greatly received.
