Best Cartridge for SME 3009 S2 IMP/Garrard 401
I have a Garrard 401 and a SME 3009 S2 Improved(detachable headshell.
I have been reading about what cartridge to use with this arm and there are several options. For what I understood if I want to use the SME 3009 S2 Improved without mods I can use a Goldring 1042, or a Shure V15 or a Grado Red or a Shure M97xE as those seems the better matches.
And also some experiences tell that if I wanna use a Denon DL103 with the SME 3009 S2 Improved I need to change the SME plastic bearings for the bronze ones, change the headshell for a heavier one and increase the mass of the counterweight for something around 135-166g.
I couldnt find too many comments about how the arm/cartridge combo matches with the garrard specifically. So I would like some advice on what will be the best cartridge for the SME 3009 S2 Improved with a garrard 401.
