I have the same TT! Excellent design! I can recommend Grado MI cartridges as a very good compatible choice! $100 - $500 price range (the $500 wood-bodied Sonata is particularly fine and competitive sonically with cartridges several times its price!).

Hi 61, hi all!
First thing to say is that I envy you because your Revox works properly:-)
My # 1 recommendation would be Shure V15 mkIV.
# 2, for more accuracy and clearer highs and the most not dirty bottom, try Nagaoka MP500, I use both, nagaoka on a 1229 Dual, and Shure on Revox. It depends what mastering type of albums you listen to.
To cut to my chase, I think Shure V15mkIV is the best of all sounding cartridges, this I say including all the pros and cons and in comparison with cheaper ones like the shure DM101 and the high end ones like the Nagaoka. For jazz and voice pieces, the Nagaoka beats everything, but if you love a vintage good quality pressing from Neil Young, you might find the Shure fits best. If you wanna listen to prog or metal, again, use Shure.
Best of times I wish to you, have a smile while listening to your records!
If you know how to remove a Shure cartridge from the Revoxs’ arm please help me, I dearly beg anyone in the position to help. My vinyl tech guy is not with us anymore, and I need to remove the cartridge all by myself. Looks like the old issue came back and after less than half a minute the playback stops and the moving part from the arm zeroes back to 00.00
Thank you in advance and sorry I spammed.
You need to find someone that understands the Revox table.There is something likely misaligned in the arm mechanism
causing the arm to return "home."
Here is a YouTube video that may be of some help.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWq-nRPlrmQ&t=14s&index=31&list=WL
After talking to Peter at Soundsmith, I'm likely going to purchasea high compliance version of the Soundsmith Aida for my Revox.
