Yeah, I figured that was odd.
What gets broken in, anyway, the body or the stylus? That is, if I get a replacement stylus down the road, would I need to break in the cartridge again?
I'll wait till 30 hours before deciding whether to keep the Nagaoka. I have an Ortofon 2M, which I like, too, but the Nag is certainly kinder on surface noise.
