RE: Cartridge bodies... less is more?

Regards voolston:

I've done three such "garge built" modifications and find no negative outcomes. However, my hearing is so far over the hill I've forgotten what the other side sounds like. I'm prone to believe Mr. Kim knows what he's talking about, is the modification reversible?

Ringing, smearing and resonances are commonly accepted as being influenced by materials implemented from stylus to turntable.

Somewhat relevant, visit:
where construction and measurement of headshells are evaluated. Search the site, ten headshells varying in materials, mass and description are considered.

Extrapolating headshell construction to materials utilized in cartridge bodies may be like comparing bacon to broccoli. In the absence of gear to accurately measure results and wether or not there is an improvement to be had, trust your ears and draw your own conclusions.
