Hi Jana,

by weight I guess you mean the VTF (Vertical Tracking Force)? For the Shure it should be 1.5 to 1.75 gr I think.

What arm is mounted? The TTS-3000 was delivered without arm, optionally various Sony or third party models could be mounted.

Best,

Thank you, I am sorry not answere before, It has a Sony 11" arm, with a heavy weight. So I ask what type of PU will I have to buy? My Shure M75 is a lot of light for the arm. Hope somebody now.

Denon DL-103 or Ortofon SPU perhaps.

But I once upon a time used a Shure of the heavier kind, do not remember which though. It was a more expensive cartridge than M75 that's for sure.

The long Sony arm was a good one.

Hi,

but you must keep in mind that for a DL-103 or SPU (Moving Coil cartridges) you need a step-up transformer or head amp before connecting it to your Moving Magnet phono input.
This is an additional investment. As far as I know the effective mass of the Sony arms is not that high, so they should work with MM carts like Shure.

Current models that would be suitable are the Shure M97xE (around 130 $) or V15VxMR (300 $).
But of course there are many others. If the arm of the TTS-3000 is not s.th. cheap, you shouldn't compromise on the cart.

Maybe you can post a pic of the arm so one can give you more precise advice...

Best,

cgb
