    I've got ortofon concord pro s on at the moment but was thinking of upgrading. What would be a good choice? Was considering ortofon nightclub.

    nightclubs are the fuckin daddy end of. I just bought some elektros and kinda regret it, no way near the build quality of the Nightclubs :(

    i dont see how needles can make a £100 difference tbh, never heard proper top notch needles i guess though.. I mean yeah the difference between some shitty 15quid bollocks from htfr and something with abit of value is very noticable!

    I got stanton diablo v3's and am very happy with them and they are cheap :) But as i said, havnt really heard anything played on anything better tbh!

    Spherical needles are the best all round needles. :teef:

    You won't go wrong with Ortofon nightclub's though.

    I got the Stanton 890 FS boxset and they are top notch. You get spherical needles for general mixing and elliptical needles to rip your vinyls to WAV/mp3 with. £140 when I got then.

    Yeh but he's on about replacing the stylus on his Concordes, but Shures are the absolute king hands down, but the Nightclubs are the daddy Concorde stylus ;)
