Up and running...Great choice , glad I chose the Ortofon Red ! Big improvement over old Shure cart. Played an old favorite, Joe Jackson's Body & Soul for comparison ...Wow! heard dynamics in that album I never heard before. Can't wait to dig into my collection.Thanks for your opinions in this regard !

I have two old Shure carts here, I bought a new Jico stylus for one of them and I'll be honest, I don't know what the fuss is about? Pleasant enough but nothing special. And I'm not anti old carts, i love the VMS 20e MKII, but some of today's carts are pretty good. Why wouldn't they be?
