Great value for money cartridge which I had for years on my first real turntable - Pioneer PL12. And then the Ortofon VMS20. I still have an Ortofon SL15 which was brilliant on several different arms. SME 3009 in particular.Agreed about the Ortofon. I remember it well.
I will second that Julian a lovely cart even at the full price of £1300 & a bit.The AT Art 9 XI is difficult to beat if you can pick one up for a grand like I did
Cartridges have come a long way since I got my first turntable. And one of the best sounds I recall was a Shure V15 lll on a SME lll on an early theorems deck ..
What did you do to the Benz to fettle it? I have one of these beasties and would be interested to know.Atm my favourite is my fettled Benz Wood sl just playing in & it's very good and getting better by the day.
I sent it to the Expert Stylus Company to be serviced & new stylus fitted.What did you do to the Benz to fettle it? I have one of these beasties and would be interested to know.
Arcam P77, a taste of analogue before digital referencing. Replacement stylus can be had from Garrott Bros and ESC to keep you goingWhat if your favourite cartridge is your most expensive one?
