ADC 26 BEST PRITCHARD CARTRIDGE EVER? or BEST CARTRIDGE EVER?
I’m glad you’re back @nandric Look, accoring to the spanish speaking in this thread: The best MM/MI cartridge is with out doubt the AKG P100LE followed by Astatic MF-2500 and others as the JVC X1MK2 or the Technics EPC 100CMK4 but no one of them ... 
ADC 26 BEST PRITCHARD CARTRIDGE EVER? or BEST CARTRIDGE EVER?
@adc-grace What only one day in high school?!? He could stay with "MM/MI sound" for one day or one night only, haha... and then to mount his cantilever-less Ikeda LOMC cartridge back for full enjoyment. p.s. i also like cartridges designed by Ike...

@nandric so you like ADC 26 too ? I'm surprised, because i can imagine when the last time you have ever used MM or MI cartidge, i think that was the days then i was in high school :)

Rocky which stylus do you have on your Pickering? Which numbers witten on the stylus plastic holder, just curious? Do you have the manual to understand how the tracking force must be adjusted for use with Brush and Without Brush ? As for the probl...

It’s so funny, but as i can see someone is very sensitive to my words and always report moderator for abusive content, ok you will get the same in return and we will see how it works.  
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
@lewm The Gold Note has a Software, PH-10 settings must be done via Digital Interface on display. I think this is why it can be more complicated compared to 100% analog phono stages. Gold Note is analog phono stage, but user friendly interface is ...

Maybe eventually you will buy a XV 750 or 1200 and listen to it. Then you will know... Stanton was my first cartridge i’ve bought myself many decades ago, so i’m very well experienced with products of this brand. In 2019 i’m not gonna buy any car...

Even the XV15 has two models with Stereohedron stylus tip The STEREOHEDRON stylus is always marked "S" - this is what i said. While the other poster pointed me to the "EEE" styli and claimed they are Stereohedron, but "E" is for Elliptical only. ...

@fsellet V15 was the entry level cartridge for Pickering, not the XV15. None of the styli I mentioned was a bonded elliptical. I suggest Google: it is a useful source of information for people who do not know the facts. Your source for informatio...

Pickering XV15 originally is an entry level cartridge with entry level bonded stylus and huge heavy cantilever, yes you can upgrade the stylus, but not with the aftermarket bootleg from LP Gear. Elliptical stylus is not an upgrade, maybe over Sphe...

@adc-graceForgive me if i asked before, but i'm curious, have you tried the ADC TRX-2 (Sapphire Cantilever / Vital Diamond) in comparison to your different ADC models ?   
pickering cartriidge xv 15 any good.
@fselleYour statement is false and seems like you don’t know the Stanton/Pickering models very well. It might be fantastic cartridge for you, but it reality it’s not a fantastic cartridge at all. Just a mediocre entry level cartridge that you can ... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
@travbrow Chakster, I did buy the top model 610LX. The low priced Azzurra looks to be a nice low budget option. I’ve bought so many amazing cartridges, my main passion is Grace F14 and LEVEL II variations (so many different and exotic cantilevers... 
Best Cartridge for $1000-$1350?
And actually the AT-ML180 and many other best ATs perform best at lower values 20-30 kOhm and very low capacitance at 100 pF IME. My ILLUSION preamp works at 20-30 kOhm range at best for all my MMs. @harold-not-the-barrel Maybe you don’t need a ca...

Sorry @rocky1313 , i mean if you want the best then look for Pickering XSV-3000 or higher models in the Pickering line. It’s not about how the looks like, but about the sound.Your XV-15 is entry level Pickering, just the basics, nothing special. A...
