    This just landed. Brand new unused cartridge and aftermarket elliptical stylus.

    I'm a happy boy, it genuinely sounds ace.

    I have the MC-25E, it's a musical cartridge that I have enjoyed a lot but after 11 years the stylus needs to be replaced. I have thought about re-tipping but it's expensive and I'm not sure the sound will be the same. There's also the option of Ortofon's exchange service, I could exchange it for the the 20 Super. Do you have experience with the MC-25E or Vitesse Sascha to compare with the Super?

    What you've got there is a proper Ortofon MC, 'musically voiced' (from the SPU heritage), and not the rather 'hi-fi sound', posing as 'accurate', much of their designs produce now.

    Respect too, on the choice of arm, which is very similar to mine!

    Marco.
    You are referring to their current designs, do you include the re-introduction of the Super too? When I think about their exchange service the Quintet series does not inspire me to proceed and the Cadenza is out of my budget. If I knew how much the cartridge prices will be raised I would have bought the Kontrapunkt b that I wanted for years.

    Is this an MC or MM cartridge?

    As Geoff says it's an MM.

    A ruddy good one actually. I've put it in a heavier headshell since, it seems to prefer that. Solid tracking and very 'big' sound, if a little unsubtle but what can you expect from a 30.00 stylus?! I've got a brand new NOS original stylus which I might try on it. As I have another identical cartridge I am tempted to sell them as one package however and spend the sale on something a little higher up the ladder . . . . oh christ . . . and so it begins again . . .

    I don't think I've ever heard a Panasonic/Technics cartridge that didn't sound decent.

    My old EPC-305MC was great!

    Yes I hear good things about the old Technics cartridges especially the EPC-305MC although I am interested in their old MM cartridges. Does anyone know which one was their top MM?
