carts / styli....
 
anyone here still playing vinyl?


what carts are you using and what do you think of them?

has anyone had experience with the ortofon concorde golds? i wouldnt mind a pair but can you set them up very accuratly and does the lift lever break easily? i heard they are just gold coloured nighclub 'e's?



cheers.

I use Ortofon DJS OMs on my Rega modified 1200's. Never had an issue with them.

When I play out on other turntables it's either the Concorde version of the Ortofon DJS or Shure WHLB White Labels.

Ortofon Concorde PRO. Cheap and cheerful thats how I'd describe them. They sound good and can handle some abuse. They stick very well and scratching is possible.

Have I mentioned they're cheap?

stanton 680's by far have the overall top performance on playback and record wear.

Audio Technica ATP2XN are by far the best sounding carts Ive used. I have used Stanton Trackmaster II, Stanton 500, Ortofon Concordes and OM10.

When you don't need to excessively back-cue then a whole range of options opens up.

Thanks for the replies. I'm into deep house, not scratching, back cueing etc...


I did a forum search, it seems the Stanton 680's were popular but it is still possible to get Stanton gear now, didn't they shut down?

Wouldn't mind some Ortofon Golds or Nightclubs.

Unfortunately no.. i have been surfing around for new styli's & had no luck. You can find current Stanton products, but earlier models such as the 680 EL/HP/AL are hard to come by.
