The zero ohm ones are just too darn expensive ... That's why the high-end stuff gets the big bucks!! smile

We need audio super conductors that won't smell like fish which died from gynecological complications.

I laughed for a few minutes over this. I guess I'd make a bad marketer. smile

Ha that would go over great here I'm in the land of Sashimi. You could market to both the Audiophiles and sushi crowds. The most recent record shop in my neighborhood is surrounded by sushi joints at least 4.

Through my research they market the Cartridge I've chosen as Audiophile/DJ. As far as I can tell. More durable stylus with higher output 5.5mv. Vs 3.5 on regular carts. According to manufacturer specs the stylus can track a little better for deeper Bass/details etc. Also it's not made for scratching or Hip hop DJing.

I picked up a Project Box USBV MM/MC. For the same as the Project MM Same E line but {top} of the 3 units. Before the S line. The MM has been rated top marks by most reviewers forever. So far it's much better than the one built in to my Fluance RT81

I was looking at the Pyle one for a bit here in Canada goes for $50. We always had a couple of their Guitar Amps. in house through my childhood. Good units back then they were built like tanks.

That makes sense - maybe trading off higher stylus pressure for better tracking on those bass lines you can see by looking at the vinyl smile

Hi Brendo,

Do you do DJ work? 2X6 is correct; they are made to take a lot of abuse and for "back-cueing"; rotating the platter backwards to cue up to the start of groove modulation. You can't do that with expensive, delicate cartridges or you'll damage the stylus assembly/cantilever.

If you don't do DJ work, then there really is no point in getting a DJ cartridge other than the aforementioned sturdy construction.

If you want to upgrade, then go to an upscale Grado (which I use), or a Shure, if they're still on the market. I've never been keen on Ortofon. they don't track as well on heavily modulated grooves as the Grado Signature line or the Shure V15s, and typically they don't have as smooth and flat frequency response. I'd still be using my Shure V15 TypeV if it hadn't gotten misplaced or lost in my move from New York back to Toronto.

In tests I did years ago with two turntables, the Grado Signature 8 tracked as well as the V15 TypeV. I had the Grado as a backup so it was little used, hence my use of it now.

Regards,
Alan

Thank you Alan.

That's my philosophy behind the D.J. cart is the stylus construction for the time being. I recently got my wife some of her favorite albums hence started her collection. Then upgrade to premium stylus down road.

In my recent research Shure is now collectors item territory. To which you can still get replica styluses. A friend of mine has 2 old tables and only likes uses Shure.

Will look more closely at Grado have a local shop with full lineup. Thank you
