In my case 2M Bronze was fitted directly to stock headshell, then just usual set-up for alignment, VTF and bias, etc.

Hi everyone. Adding some info to this thread. I’m having a bit of PS transformer induced hum on MC carts as soon as I turn on my PLX-1000. The hum is also present on MM carts but much more subtly. Either way, I just prefer my MC carts and have learned to live with a bit of low level hum in my signal.

Definitely thinking about building a separate power supply, in order to solve the hum on MC carts. Unless someone has a better idea.

Back on topic: The 2M Bronze will sound fantastic on your table. I’d probably would mount it on a technics headshell (7.5 gram). It’s lighter and has more leeway on overhang adjustment, allowing for more aggressive baerwald or logfren alignments. but should work well on the stock headshell.

Cheers
Luis

I am looking at the Pioneer PLX-1000 table. There are a couple of cartridges I am am thinking about for it.
The Audio Technica AT150MLX, AT440MLB, AT33EV or AT-F7 are ones in my price range. Which one, if any would be the best match?
Thanks for the advice!

I also have an AT440mlb and it works great on the PLX-1000, albeit with a light headshell. AT-F7 also works great, on stock headshell. AT28E (sibling of the AT33EV) also works great on stock headshell. But, both of them pick up hum from the power supply transformer.

Cheers
