Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
Great information Dover.....thanks 👍You should write a history of the Garrott Brothers and their cartridges before you cark it....as nobody will know the full story in the forthcoming years....And I think it is a story that has a place in the hist...

I assume you mean "moot" or was this a Freudian slip !Haha.....Thanks for chiming in Dover as I know I can trust your information......So what is your opinion of Chakster's P77?Is it the first version you speak of with the Weinz Parabolic?.....and... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
I hate to be the bearer of bad news Chakster.....but your Garrott P77 is NOT an original cartridge produced by John and Brian Garrott whilst they were alive.All their P77 cartridges had the raised lettering DYNAMIC COIL cast with the plastic body.... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
Yes, but i have an old original motor (generator) and many of us have it too, so the stylus is what we can try on it. You're very good with pictures Chakster. Can you post one of your original P77 with the stylus assembly showing the red Playdough...

The original Garrott P77 used the body and motor of the A&R P77 from England which has not been available for 30 years I believe.So the new Garrott P77i has a different motor, body, stylus and cantilever.You may as well be comparing apples and...

THIS is what the original stylus assembly from the Garrott Bros looks like.If yours doesn't look like this, then you don't have an original Garrott Bros stylus.There was nothing special about the assembly. It used a 'selected' elliptical stylus on...

Dear Raul,I’m pleased to hear you like the 4MD-20X.Are you sure that it has a beryllium cantilever? I’m interested in learning where you found that information?The 4MD-1X is, as I reported earlier.....even better than the 20X and its cantilever is... 
NOS Grace F9E question
A good point Chakster....and one I have read many times.It's not as if these famous mastering engineers haven't heard the best LOMCs....and their opinions carry far more weight than the average punter.After all.....they are comparing directly to t...

I for one, understand Chakster's philosophy in only collecting 'original' manufacture's vintage cartridge models...and applaud him for it 👏In a way....it is the only correct methodology in accurately commenting on a particular cartridge's 'sound' ... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
I've been waiting over two years for a Victor X-1 with original Shibata stylus on beryllium cantilever to come up for sale and finally found one on Japan Yahoo.....or so I thought 🤔The giveaway should have been that I won it for $110...and when it...

Vintage DD turntables. Are we living dangerously?
Lewm, whilst the TT-81 has the identical positive and negative speed control in the servo detector......it does not have the coreless motor of the TT-101. 
Vintage DD turntables. Are we living dangerously?
Whilst the dimensions of the enclosing cage are identical.....to think that the TT-81 is in any way 'identical' to the TT-101 is a mistake...👅
