    Sure, Ortofon, Stanton etc are all fine makes of carts.
    However, I personally recomend Ortofon.
    I use the OM DJ'S and I would never use any other make now.
    It is quite rare that I am that impressed by something (especially so small) but they have blown me away.
    Also concords are unnesersary as te OM'S will do the job fine.

    shures=the way forward, been using them for years they are boss.
     
  6. I've recently sold my shure whitelabels and gone onto shure m477's... The difference in output between the two is ridiculous! I'm so glad I changed... The 477's are louder, more bass and hit the high frequencies better. At 35quid each they are well worth it
     
  7. Sorry... Typo... M447's I meant. ;)

    Changed from Ortofon Concord DJ S (blue ones) to some M447G and they're much better for my style.

    Ortonfon has slightly better sound quality, Shure are more reliable for me.

    I'm another shure m447 fan, I use the standard technic headshells.
