My new Benz Micro Ebony took many hundreds of hours to break in, and I suspect it isnt there yet. Youre saying that your Ortofon is quite old. If it has been set up properly, and doesnt track very well, I would suspect a hardening of the suspension. The diamond and cantilever may be perfect, but the rubber block, etc. in the cartridge itself most probably is aged beyond its time. Personally, I dont let a cartridge age more than a year or 2 before replacing it.
