  1. When I'm looking for a good cartridge the AT95 with vivid line definitely high on my list. But since you have more budget you can try to get a used grace f9 body then use the soundsmith new stylus or get a om40 super for $440 of ebay this uses the same naked shibata as 2m black. Or if you can go MC there are some great value cart around that price denon 301 or at33 comes to mind
  2. FS: Mayware Formula IV Tonearm

    Grace f9 also likes them alot
  3. Item: Japan AUDIO-TECHNICA Mono MC Type Cartridge AT-MONO3/SP New Location: Melbourne Price: $130 Item Condition: New Reason for selling: Wrong purchase Payment Method: Pickup Extra Info: Accidentally bought the 78RPM version of this mono cartridge and I need the LP version. Cost $155 and I can return it but it will cost me $25 on shipping back to Japan. I should get the cartridge next week and putting it here if someone needs one and get a discount on the new price Pictures:
  4. Starter mono cartridge

    Yes that grado m+ is also one of the recommended one
  5. Starter mono cartridge

    Nope both table doesn't have 78
  6. Starter mono cartridge

    Ah crap..... I bought the at mono3 last night didn't pay attention that's is SP version not LP. Just realized it after I get the item shipped notification. Gahhh
  7. Starter mono cartridge

    that's just a signal sum with a voltage divider right? Don't think it can get rid of the vertical noise
  8. Starter mono cartridge

    You're right the cheaper one are a modified stereo. But this AT seems to be modified properly rather than just summing signal like a Y splitter or a mono switch. it is designed to completely not read the vertical movement so reported to have much less surface noise because of this design compared with summing signals
  9. Starter mono cartridge

    True It won't be the best..... Then again I only have just a few mono record (under 10) I can upgrade later when my mono collection grew
  10. Looking for a low end mono cartridge since I don't have that many mono record. Was looking for under $100 but can't find any audio technica at-mono 3 seems to be the cheapest at around $150 from ebay. any suggestion for cheaper cartridge?
  11. Well since all settings are covered the other possibilities is quite bad. Example it might be a bearing issue
  12. What about antiskate? Properly set? Make sure the string also doesn't have any stuff stuck on it
  13. Well tempered classic

    Yes it's concave but I use a rigmat goldspot http://www.ringmat.com/products/ringmatanniversarygoldspot.htm which lifted the record off platter and since it's only around 10 inch it doing so and makes everything flat
  14. The kit consumes just 3.3ma so will last really long time. I did consider battery but went ipower instead. This is Chris recommended small case https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/silver-full-Aluminum-preamp-Enclosure-AMP-case-power-amplifier-box-chassis-YA29/262981161982?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Aluminum-Chassis-Amplifier-Case-Wooden-side-panel-Box-Mini-Enclosure-Hifi-House/281690816998?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 The construction is as easy as it gets but the instruction is quite confusing and you need to read a couple of time to understand what to do. I think a quick schematic would have helped but Chriss communication during the build was top notch
