Switching Ortofon stylus on different body
If I buy digitrack stylus and put them on my Pro S carts, will I get the benifits or will output etc be the same?

^^ you sure? i wonder if the digitrack cart is any different internally. if not, the answer is yes.

The pro s carts are 5mV output, the digitracks are 8mV output.

the q-bert's are 11mV. they'd actually give the best signal. a shitload more expensive tho..

Yeah but my question revolves around, is the output from cart or stylus? Will I get the output benefits, tracking benefits or neither?

Anyway I went into a record store today and asked and he said nope so either replace with Pro S stylus or just buy a whole new set of carts.

i'd say it's a combination of the stylus and the cart that gives the higher output.

i imagine you could very well get improved tracking with a better stylus though...

i have qbert stylus with pro s carts. there is a noticeable difference in output over the original stylus, and tracking is improved.

which question was he answering

output stylus based sound is
cart fuck not matter.

don't get benefit of better quality cart construction which leads to stylus decay faster.

so more expensive stylus runs out faster than matched stylus cart.


/endscript drunk yoda

from what I've read, not experienced, as i match carts and styli (except for M44g / M44-7)

i can't see how the stylus can wear out any quicker with unmatched cart, providing you have it weighted correctly

....


so I've been told, the cheaper ortofons only support the stylus on one side of the cart, the better ones are stronger and hold the stylus in position better.

yeah bracko could well be right, but i reckon that wearing out issue would be so marginal you probably won't even notice. it's still a cheaper alternative if you have pro-s carts and wanna upgrade to better styli.
