Very nice classic arm, but I also remember that Syrinx had bearing issues. However, if the bearings are not loose and the arm does not freeze up while playing an LP, I would not be concerned. I also owned the Grado MCZ very many years ago. It was a pleasant sounding cartridge, but was slow and thick and grainy compared to other designs.
Thanks for the input guys.
Any comments on my cartridge situation?
I have an almost-new Blue Point Special as well as the Grado MCZ. Do you recommend going with the BPS vs. spending $$ on a new stylus for the MCZ? If I recall correctly, Needledoctor says "Grado isnt making that stylus anymore, so youll have to go with the MC+, or ME+. Either will fit, while the ME+ will be the closest to the MCZ in sound quality.
I think these were priced at $50 and $90...
Grado says they have a MCZ replacement stylus for $150. Do you think it's worth it?
Again, comments appreciated.
