I would rather try a variety of cartridges to find the one for you combined with optimizing the rest of the analog chain including the phono stage and the sensitive cabling involved.

    Bob, I traded up to a Turbo arm from the standard one for my V12 and the difference was a significant and worthwhile one. The Turbo arm is beautifully engineered and works seamlessly with the V12 turntable. Adjustments are much easier to make than with the standard arm. I agree with Marcus's comments above. I can't see why you would risk an incompatible match trying something else.

    Thanks for your comments. I've not heard from anyone that has made the upgrade that didn't feel it was worth the investment. I expect I'll be placing my order soon.
