    Default What to do with these carts?

    Hi all.

    Been having a dig around and found these.

    Ortofon rondo red
    Goldring g1042
    Stanton 500 V3

    Both Rondo and Goldring have broken cantilevers.

    Not keen on the Stanton myself but it's a good little cart overall.

    Does anyone recommend having these repaired?

    The Goldring is a great boogie cart so a new front section could be good but I'm looking to invest in something different.

    rondo red was a good cart and unobtainable now so might be worth retipping that. jazz lovers like it

    I like the 1042 as well. Well worth treating it to a new stylus IMHO.

    I had my rondo red upgraded to top of the line Bronze spec and it was stunning. Father in law still has it and every time i hear it i want it back

    If anyone is interested in the Rondo Red, let me know.

    Ortofon do a trade-in offer and the Rondo Red has a value of 89 against a new Ortofon cart.

    Is this (usually %) trade-in not dependent upon which cart. is purchased? It is with Lyra (and another; Benz?)

    Can't remember but I think it's only for another ortofon making up no more of 30% of the value of the new cart.

    Still a good deal.
