Been heavily researching prev posts on here & other sites attempting to summarise cartridges which we could term more or less ideally suited to SL1200/1210 MKII tables fitted with the STANDARD med' mass arm.
Not talking about the "electrical" factors of output level, inductance etc; just the issue of being "compatible" with the standard tonearm.
MM or MC-either way.
Seems most recommendations for a cart "boil down" to either OM10, DL110 or Benz Micro Gold/Silver.
Seems the bulk of other cartridges fall into the "too compliant" basket and need low-mass arm transplants to be used on the Technics.
Mind you, I am looking at EITHER brand-new, currently manufactured and average sale price up to say US/AUD $500.00 OR older pre-hugged or NOS per Ebay etc.
Understanding also that the likes of silicone damper troughs can be fitted but which other carts would then become "compatible"?
I think lots of fellow members who use SL12xx's would find this an interesting "list" so let's hear your thoughts.... Cheers
