    well at first i started with the numark cs-1's and found out they couldn't handle my regiment, so at the moment I am rolling with cc-1 ( tony touch ) carts from numark that can handle more abuse , they are nice and sound proper for the bedroom . I also hear stanton has some nice carts, like teh 505sks and the trackmasters , but if you have the money go with Ortofon club standard , out of all the ones 505sk by stantons will do you good and they are affordable which is the key point to my reply , hope this sheds more like than confuses you :confused:

    I recommend Shure M44-7

    They are good value for money, sound is awesome, and tracking is epic. You can spinback as fast as you like and it won't skip.

    Also watch this video on how to set up your tonearm, tracking force, and anti skate properly

    Highly recommend that you watch this.

    M-44 7 for me too tough, affordable and quality. SOme shops often have deals on them too.
