I have the Ortifon silver nightclub series carts. I bought them over a year ago and they've been working great without the need for a needle change. Its the second best cart they offer, the better one is much more expensive and has an increased output level.

Not got em, but I've heard very good things about the Concorde DJ Ss.

End of the way, only way you're going to find a cart that you feel truly suited to is by going into a shop that sells this stuff and comparing each one on a very demanding piece of vinyl side-by-side / one after another. That's definitely how I'd do it if I was going to make an ongoing investment like this, I want top quality for my hard cash.


Course, I'd also buy some moving coil carts for home listening, cause they have a more balanced output, but that's the technophile in me emerging. :geek:

I love my shure whitelabels.

They're not really for turtablists, but if you want to care for your vinyl, they're the shizzle.

Never skip on me, and I've got them so light. Anyone who mixes on my decks is taken back.
