TP 50 headshell and cartridge

Post by Ivo_A » 28 Sep 2019 23:45

Hello all,

I was thinking should I post this topic here or in cartridges forum, but since this is about Thorens headshell, I am posting it here. I hope that I am not wrong.

I am refreshing my TD 150 MK II. It has TP 13 A tonearm and TP 50 headshell. I am looking for new cartridge and realized that some cartridges that fits in my budget have threaded holes, like Audio Technica AT-VM95E or Goldring. As TP 50 has threaded holes and allows mounting from bottom, I am afraid that these cartridges can't be mounted on TP 50.

What cartridge do you recommend in budget of about 60 Eur that can fit to TP 50. I can still find (now discontinued) AT 95E for fair price. Beside that, there are Ortofon OM 5E or OM 10 that fits budget. Ortofon RED 2M (verso type) is a bit above my budget.

I have read a lot about AT 95E and it seems to be best buy in this price range, but yours advice would be much helpful.

Ivo
