Doing a test spin of my new Thakker/Jico stylus for the Dual M20E-DN350 cartridge that came with my Dual 601 turntable.
So far it sounds nice and my other cartridge, Shure M75/Jico elliptical has got some competition.

Trying out these stylus on a Signet TK3Ea
From left to right
VMN40ML
AT125LC
AT120E
AT100E
The dark blue one is possibly an ATN142LP,
My research showed it to be a .2x.7 nude shank.
They all sounded great! I liked the 125 LC the least.
Surprisingly, I liked the dark blue one the best. Then again, I listen to mainly rock music from the 60's to the 90's with lots of bass!
The Microline came in second, then the 120 was a very close second and the 100 was fourth.
Not sure if I got a bad 125LC or what, but I probably wouldn't seek that out again.
Just my opinion!

Pioneer PC-330E

Very inexpensive and good cartridge.
Sharp (Optonica) C 102 is assembled more thoroughly. But these are my personal signs))

Happy new Year everybody,

did some research of my 'most wanted' carts and put them together in a box to have them available
'right out the box', if desired. Oh man, I love them all... [-o<

I want to add that with the sound of the factory Denon-304 my cartridge has little in common, which amazes me to a great extent. After all, I changed only the cantilever, the stylus and the order of winding the coils. The concept of the cartridge has been saved.

To an even greater extent, I was struck by another fact. During my endless experiments, I permanently damaged my Prototype - Delta-1. I decided on its basis to assemble a new cartridge and assembled it. To my surprise there was no limit when I heard the familiar old sound of a cartridge! ))
In the process of upgrading, I changed the wire, the winding, the core of the coils, the damper, the stylus, the length of the cantilever.

This is probably my handwriting and cannot be changed now, unless you work with your left hand))
