Best Stylus to transfer vinyl to wav.

Does anyone know what is the best or preferred stylus when transferring old vinyls to wav? I currently have Ortofon Nightclub S's, but i don't wanna use them as they are a matched pair.

There is nothing stopping you using the Night Club S but the sound is dire, I like the Audio Technica AT-440MLa a lot.
It's not a badly priced moving magnet and imo gives great results.

There is no preferred method, just use your ears..some folks like Stanton some Ortofon..others may shock horror prefer the tsss from a DJ cart over a well balanced hi-fi needle.

hmmmm... Ortofon = tinny garbage AIF or WAV.. Stanton Trackmaster, considered shit = gives the digital file depth.. go figure.. the Ortofon are better for your records for wear and tear, but when recording you need to capture those bass and kicks in the grooves... Ortofon, maybe for classical music or perhaps traktor.. but not for Club music..

I like the Ortofon OM 20E, super OM 20E, and the Denon high output moving coils.

I use the Shure M97xE exclusively for digital archiving my vinyl.

+1 for the Shure M97xe.

I use the DJS for mixing, but for ripping and archiving, I use the Shure M97xe.

I have a dedicated 1200 next to my computer with the Shure cartridge going to a dedicated phono pre and then into a Fireface 400.

Good luck!

I heard good things about the Shure ,.. We should record a couple of tracks with our catridges so we can have a good reference, specially well recorded vinyls, right now im transfering many stuff to digital FLAC
