What's a good price for an AT440Mla + are they as good as all that?
Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on this Audio technica Cartridge and whats a good price to pay for one. There's someone on ebay selling them at £125 and another at £150 and i'm sorely tempted. I'm new to the vinyl game and I've heard lots of good things about this particular cart, alot of the reviews pointing out the Microline stylus tip for it's ability to "track like a champ", but i'd like a second opinion before parting with my readies.
Also i'm using my dad's old technics sl-q210 deck which uses a p-mount so does anyone know if the at440mla will fit? and is it worth splashing out for this cart with this deck? will all the detail revealed by the cart be lost through the deck, amp and speakers? ( cambride azur 640a amp, 640p pre-amp and B&W 601 s3 speakers)
Any help before the auction ends in the next 3 days will be great!
