    Thanks for this great thread, David. I think I will purchase a couple more less expensive cartridges, now that I've read this thread. Another reason to have a few cartridges, rather than just one is that you won't be out of music if a cantilever gets bent. I have two cartridges sitting with bent cantilevers right now and I have no clue how they got that way!
    Regards,
    Steve

    You're welcome Steve. I feel one of the beauties of analog tt is the ability to enjoy different flavors at will. You don't always need the ultimate cartridge to have fun...

    My two fave vintage Japanese mm carts.

    Technics EPC-100 mk4 @ 1.2 mv hard to believe it's a mm. Measures literally like a straight line and sounds sensational. Now with a VDH stylus, lost a little of the original magic of
