I am so done with cartridges that use nuts; from here on out, it's threaded or nothing.

Sumiko Moonstone and Audio Technica VM95ML are the latest additions to my collection. Both threaded--both great!
Hi how would you compare the two in your experience?
Thanks

Hi everybody,
I have only six mm phono cartridges.
Two concorde elektro for djing and listen old lp.
Nagaoka mp 110 mounted on audio technica at lp 120.
Denon dl-109 d mounted on a Lenco l75(jelco sa 250 tonearm), my favorite 😍, but original stylus is impossible to find 😭.
Audio technica at 125 lc with atn 130 e, I like it and original stylus is still available. I use it each day on my Lenco.
Audio technica at 125 lc with atn 140 ml very nice sound, I use it with mint or near mint lp.
That's all and suits me.
Happy holidays guys. Greetings from France.

Denon DL-109 is a very good MM cartridge))

Hello dimitry it's good to know you can do that.
I bought a jico stylus replacement for the dl 109d,i tried it and it was not very good, nothing to see with the original.When the time will come, I'll send it to Vladivostok. 😉
Have a great day
All my best wishes for this new year.

Lucky number 13 for me.

My first and still in occasional use CEC MC7
2 AT 95e
Grado early version Gold M+
Brand new AT3830e on JVC linear tracker
Technics P128 w. P22 stylus
ADC PSX-40 with Jico stylus
Shure Premier Black with M95E stylus
Realistic R47XT with NCD-ED stylus
Shure M70EB improved
Concord CMC 60 requiring re-tip
Shure M92E with N104e stylus upgrade

I'd have to say the ADC PSX-40 is my favorite at the moment, followed by the RX47XT. The AT3830e sounds very promising, but is only a week old at the moment.

AT3600L
AT95E
ATVS210E - ATN12XE stylus
AT120E - ATN12XE "
Ortofon OM10
Ortofon OM10 with OM20 stylus
ADC QLM 36 MK III- Stylus RSQ36 original
Empire 1001 ZE/X III with generic LP Gear stylus

All except the Ortofons I am able to play and switch on a Technics SLQ2 with the interchangeable headshells. The OM 10 is on Project Debut III and the OM20 on a Dual 1237 changer. They all sound great, just some difference in flavors
