Impressions: Benz Glider SH vs Shelter 501?
I have a relatively new Gyrodec SE/SME309 and kept my Benz Glider SH from my previous rig, Sota Saphire/ET2 arm. Phono pre is the ASR Basis Exclusive. I am happy with the performance of the Benz but I am in a vacuum as there are few places around to audition analog gear. The Benz has a lot of hours on it and I am prob due for a re-tip or replacement soon. I could use some input regarding options, impressions, etc. Does anyone else have opinions on the Shelter 501 compared to the Benz or any other recommendations regarding a cartridge for my set up? I listen to mostly acoustic music/folk, jazz sprinkled with classic rock. I am probably not going to spend any more than $2500. Less is better if the value is there. Any info appreciated.
