    Default Stylus for Shure M7D cartridge

    I have just joined the club and bought a Shure M7D cartridge on flea bay from the other side of the pond, but the wait is tantalizing. As far as I know that the M7D is identical to the M3D electrically and mechanically, and it means that a N21D stylus which, Macro strongly recommended, would be a must. Is there another good alternative besides the N21D?

    HI Dave,

    Will it be even better if I get it retipped by Expert Stylus Company or Soundsmith?
