Dynavector 10x5 MC phono cartridge - as new $350. $300 shipped within USA. Legendary moving coil cartridge with great reviews. Comes with original box/packaging/instructions & needle cleaning brush. Needledoctor was selling these re-tipped for $600. Bought from friend, sent to re-tipping service/not mounted since getting it back. Here's the write up after service: "Hi Jim, I noticed that the original cantilever and nude diamond tip assembly was still hanging onto your cartridge. I inspected it under the microscope and it looked brand new. There was no detectable wear to the diamond. So instead of installing a new bonded tip, your cartridge has been reunited with its original nude tip. Working great now and testing perfect. Third photo shows perfect channel balance, fourth and fifth show respective channel separation figures approaching 40dB at 1000Hz which is quite high. Spec is only 25dB at 1000Hz. Photos 1 and 2 show suspension is fine and cantilever tracks straight. It’s as good as new! Joseph"
I have a Pro-Ject RM 5.1 SE Turntable that came with the Sumiko Blue Point 2 High Output Moving Coil Cartridge. I am going to be hooking it up to The Fisher 400 Tube Receiver. Would I be better suited with a Moving Magnet Cartridge? Should I buy something like the Ortofon 2M Bronze? Will there be a noticeable difference?
