I've bought my SL-1210Mk2 a few weeks ago. Played it first with a well leveled 2M Red and was enthusiastic. 3 days ago, I switched to a brand new AT-VM95SH/H. The more I play it, the more I'm falling in love with it.

I have a Shure M447 cartridge with a JICO M55 E stylus.

I will upgrade to something better. I got the Technics 1210 MK 2 just a few days ago.

AT-VM540ML
Absolutely addictive. Highly recommended. Attractive price for outstanding performance on SL-1200GR.

Can you describe what it is about the A-T VM540ML which makes it outstanding? I only have experience with a handful of cartridges: Shure V15V-MR, Shure V15V/Jico SAS, Shure M97xE, and Ortofon 2M Red. Of those, the Shure V15V/Jico SAS seems to more smoothly present all there is in the groove, from bass to highs and everything in between. Nevertheless I've heard others say they too are liking the A-T, which makes me think maybe I should get one.
