Thanks for the info. Again, everyone here is a great resource. The stylus I have appears to be in pretty great shape, although I haven’t checked it under a microscope yet. I A/B’ed it with the m12e cartridge and it sounds a lot better, although the m12 sounds pretty good too. Lucky for me that it came with both. I have a question about headshells. The unit came with the stock one and a much lighter aftermarket one. The M13e is currently on the stock one. Is there any benefit or drawback from the difference in weight?
