recording direct from turntable

Wilshy Wrote:@mark - been looking into cartridges that fit the bill for this and come across much cheaper alternatives to the Denon that would do the job perfectly.

Grado Prestige Black £55

Shure M97xe - £75 (freq charts and all sorts)

Budget Choice
Audio-Technica 95e - £30/£35

Audio-Technica 92ecd - £25

Judging by all that the Grado is the best all rounder and Grado are a very trusted hifi brand. But the AT95e gets some very good reviews as well. £20 cheaper but surely the extra £20 is worth it?

Over to you! Trying to convince myself I need one now. Just don't listen to music on vinyl unless DJing. But to record tracks in it's got to be a good investment.

i got an ortofton elctro but i'm thinking this won't be good for the job now

I've been really impressed with the sound and depth from my Ortofon Pro S (I think that's the model). When they were new at least, whole different league to the old Stanton 500s.

Mark, you're going in with the preamp as well. Top notch quality! Some serious bits of kit out there. This little beaut comes in much cheaper than just the tone arm.
