RE: Ortofon SPU #1S, a grown up Denon 103. nt

If you don't mind buying used pick up a low hour Benz Gilder or HO or MO.09. I've moddded a number 103 and I can say that IME the are a budget reference. Potted, nude, carbon or ebony makes them a fantastic sounding cartridge but just a tad short of the Benz I suggested.

I have an ACE out to Peter @ Soundsmith coming back with a sapphire upgrade, which I'm hoping elevates it. Stock it was hit or miss for me.

I'm mounting a Clear Audio on a custom Thorens table I've made for someone and a quick listen was very promising. It was a Mistro V2 moving magnet. Again, you would have to look used.
