    I can do them much cheaper if you only have 1 leg on each stand!

    the report back with current prices,
    not bad for 50 yr old stylus that imo betters a 2m black or zyx r-100

    1. Decca C4E cartridge, serial no.11305.
    Stylus 20% worn output and separation good.

    Options:-
    Clean and test..............................40.00
    Install extended contact stylus..255.00
    Install Paratrace stylus..............300.00

    what do you mean sell everything else? lol
    my only concern with the paratrace is azimuth has to be spot on,as you know we cant do that with the alphason so it would have to be done with paper shims or the like.
    having said that though i did do that with the 2m black and it wasn't too much of a ball ache.
    i asked john wright to fit what he thinks best and that was the extended line contact tip.

    Well, yes it's the only downside of the Alphason.

    You're not gonna go wrong either way to be fair. I'll be watching for your review of the Decca.

    Not a fan of the paratrace, this is the right decision IMO.
