If you listen to a lot of mono records, you need a mono cartridge. Otherwise, you will not hear everything from the recording. If you have a removable headshell, this would help your problem.

I don't have a removeable headshell but I am thinking about a Graham arm which is removeable (the whole arm wand) and a Lyra Heilikon mono cartridge instead of my OL Silver and Shelter 501. I could probably just go mono on everything and not miss the stereo - so little good stereo was done in the 50's / 60's
