The SME hypothesis is attractive and tempting, but I'd like to try the factory-fresh solution first :lol:
Thank You very much.

I'm coming to this a bit late but my question is similar to that of Cafe Latte. Why are the wires comming out of the arm? I was expecting a socket similar to that of SME and a good many Japanese turntables. Are the wires expected to go directly to the cartridge and the nut just retains the shell? I suppose if it is solid that is OK, but it is sure more trouble to swap headshells than with the SME approach.
Arm geometry is not my greatest expertise but I'm wondering if putting an SME type socket on the arm and using an SME type shell might not be a good approach. Here is an SME socket on eBay now:

There are all sorts of SME type headshells on eBay at various prices.
Someone with more arm geometry expertise than me should comment on this.

I'm doing that now. The headshell is free of the tonearm.
What kind of cartridge is that? I've never heard of ERC.
