There still are many good cartridges available on the market that will suit the precision close tolerance, low-medium mass arm of the Technics SL-1200 very well.Some of the top cartridge manufacturers include Audio Technica, Goldring, Ortofon, and Shure.With the Super OM series only the stylus was different, not so with the 2M series, possibly a mistake all things considered!

Headshells for the SL1200 series turntables are readily available and fitting a new cartridge into one avoids the necessity of disturbing the sensitive alignment of the existing cartridge – just carefully remove the first headshell and replace it with the second and re-balance the arm.The trouble is that being a high inductance cartridge, excessive load capacitance will quickly roll off the upper treble, making it sound rather dull.With the ‘right’ level of overall load (shunt) capacitance around 250 picofarads, the M97Xe sounds as was intended by Shure, and if one wants a more linear upper treble increasing the phono stage input resistance (as I do to 62 k along with low shunt capacitance), will achieve that nicely. 240912.: The Red Ed from Ed Saunders is available in conical and elliptical versions, they seem to be OEM versions of the Goldring Elan and Elektra! ) - Worth a look here: Technica: Ortofon: Ortofon 2M Series: Shure: Ortofon apparently discontinued its acclaimed range of Super OM cartridges around 2008.The 2M Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5m V. Channel balance at 1 k Hz 1,5 d B Tracking ability at 315Hz at recommended tracking force 70 µm Compliance, dynamic, lateral 20 µm/m N Stylus type Elliptical Stylus tip radius r/R 8/18 µm Tracking angle 20° Internal impedance, DC resistance 1,3 k Ohm Internal inductance 700 m H Recommended load resistance 47 k Ohm Recommended load capacitance 150-300 p F Cartridge weight 7,2 g "The AT120E features a high efficiency, para-toroidal coil assembly and dual magnet stylus assembly.It borrows many of the superlative features of our top of the line models.
