Yes, there is general agreement that a more rigid one piece system is inherently superior. This in no way means that replaceable stylus cartridges cannot be good, just that they have to make a compromise that non replaceable ones do not. If you want a replaceable stylus one there are many which are quite good, Raul posts lists of them quite often. The new Ortofon line, NOS ones from their old lines, Audio Technica 150 or other model and many others.
