Ive got an SL-10 recently and would really like recommendations other than the almost unobtainable EPS-310MC that it originally came with

- Its currently got an audio technica 311EP mounted 

 

Does anyone have any suggestions? MM or MC options welcome!

Outside of the 310MC, I enjoyed the Pickering TMZ-22E. Not as smooth or refined as the 310, but nice and dynamic. I preferred it to the Technics EPS-22 with boron cantilever that originally came with the Technics SL-7. Thakker sells it but not sure if they’ve reopened shipping to Australia.

Search technics 310 cartridge in eBay, you may be surprised just how many come up for sale. I believe the original would have been an EPC 310, and the replacement EPS 310 come up on ebay regularly as new old stock units. Expect to pay in the $650 range.

I'll definitely check it out! Any chance you'd be letting go of any new old stock 310MCs? :)

I only have one still sealed 310MC and not keen on selling and definitely not at the price suggested a few posts ago.😲 You may get a lightly used or unsealed ‘possibly’ NOS one for $650 - $750 but a still sealed, guaranteed NOS would be closer to $900+.

 

If you pm Hlov, he has my former Pickering cart and was looking at selling (he’s using a 310MC I sold him).

What is wrong with the EPS 310 you have?

Has anyone used the current Garrott bros setup to have an EPS-310 retipped? I have one on my SL-10 that still sounds pretty good to my ears but at some point I'll have to bite the bullet and get a new diamond. 


Also curious as to whether anyone has had success with the higher-end Grado p-mounts on an SL-10. I tried a Prestige Black with my SL-5 and it sounded pretty cheerful (with no hum) but to be honest most things sound pretty cheerful through the SL-5 - it's great fun for tunes in the living room but probably not the most revealing of the Technics linear trackers.

      Ortofon moving magnet cartridge with Nude Fine Line stylus.
       
      The cartridge was supplied with my ex-demo turntable and has less than 50 hours on it. I have not mounted or used the cartridge. Offered at less than half the price when new in store!
       
      The 2M Series of cartridges is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove.
       
      The Ortofon 2M Bronze is second from the top of Ortofon's moving magnet cartridge range. 
       
      The 2M Bronze shares the same body as the top of the range 2M Black, so you can buy a Black stylus only and upgrade should you get the itch.
       
       
       
      Supplied:
       
      Ortofon 2M Bronze cartridge
      2 x mounting screws

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Lane Cove State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal or EFT Reason for selling: Upgraded Further information:
       
      This cartridge has had approximately 150 hours use and is in perfect condition. I can't remember the exact retail price when purchased new but from memory it was around $2500 give or take.
       
      I'm selling simply because I decided to upgrade to an Acoustical Systems Archon cartridge. This wasn't due to any outright criticism of the Pi itself but simply due to that never ending "itch" to always try and improve on what you've got! IMHO it's a fantastic all round cartridge - nicely balanced and superbly detailed.
       
      As you can see from the photos the cantilever is in perfect condition and the cart was never dropped onto the record or 'abused' in any way. Included are the stylus cleaning brush, standard fastening screws which come in two lengths and a pair of washers.
       
      Specs from Brinkmann website:
       
      Type Moving Coil Weight 14 g Stylus microridge, radius 3 µm Compliance 15 µm/mN Tracking force 1,8 g Vertical tracking angle 23° Output voltage 0,15 mV (velocity 1 cm/sec) Output impedance 20 Ohm Load (recommended) 600 Ohm Frequency response 0 Hz....30 kHz Frequency intermodulation 0,5 % Crosstalk 25 dB (1 kHz) Body three-piece resonance optimised luminum body
