Phono cartridges

  • When upgrading to a higher quality phono cartridge, is it necessary to match it to the factory cartridge that the turntable was manufactured with (cartridge weight, moving magnet, dual magnet, etc.)?

  • You will want to use the same type (Moving Magnet vs Moving Coil) and mounting style (P mount, standard, etc.) but weight should not be an issue on a quality table that allows you to adjust the tracking force.

    I hope that helps.

    Anyone else have a good recommendation?
