    Re: What cartridges are you using?

    Just acquired and installed today the Ortofon Windfeld ti - thank you Mike! The W ti replaces my 3 yr old old faithful and great sounding Cadenza Black. The W ti performs at a much higher level than the Black - more detail, sharper image and more controlled bass (initial impressions after less than 10 hrs).

    Nagaoka MP-50. on the Exclusive P3, loaded at 100K on the Accuphase - sounds amazing for a $500 cartridge.

    Congrats, great cart! Also one I could imagine getting, should I decide to swop the Benz Gullwing.

    Excellent choice. You can hardly go wrong with Ortofon.

    I have the van den Hul Crimson XGW Stradivarivus and totally love it. Before that Koetsu Black and Dynavector TKR.

    Just jumping back into vinyl. Digital will continue to be my primary source, however my basic little table is running an Ortofon 2M Blue.

    Re: What cartridges are you using?

    I just mounted a vdH Crimson Stradivarius yesterday! The body shape and easy-to-see cantilever help to make it easy to set up. Right out of the box it sounded totally enjoyable. Really looking forward to seeing how it sounds after some break in.
