    That yours?
  • ClipdatClipdat Posts: 4,952
    No, but I want one of these. I've never cleaned my stylus at all.
  • joecoulsonjoecoulson Posts: 936
    I got one of these a while back, but it’s more for larger dust and debris. Works fine for me.

    But I have seen that one on there too
    Just have a new Cart and am pretty good about cleaning my vinyl so didn’t think I needed it.

    Vinyl sounding good on a Friday evening.

    You and me both bro. Started with Nirvana, then to Pink Floyd. Finishing up the evening with a little YO Yo Ma doing Bach. Good stuff.

    I think it is. If so, I have the same turntable with the same cartridges. :p

    That’s awesome. What kind of cart is that? Looks a bit like the Ortofon somethin’ or other, can’t remember the specific model. The long and thin cartridge.

    Micah I've had these two turntables for 18 years, never been serviced. They still work exactly the same as the day I bought them for $500 each.

    This is the stylus: https://www.ortofon.com/stylus-nightclub-e-p-250

    Don't make them like they used to.
    Nice turntable, and nice cartridge. The jealousy is getting stronger by the minute... :wink:

    Before I got laid off, I was thinking about upgrading the cartridge to this: https://www.turntablelab.com/products/audio-technica-vm540ml-cartridge-mounted-on-at-hs10bk-headshell-vm540ml-h

  • ClipdatClipdat Posts: 4,952
    I've only ever owned these Ortofon Night Club E carts, and Shure White Label carts. They both sounded really good to me, so I'm of course skeptical that a pricier cartridge could sound even better.

    I'm scared to go down the cartridge rabbit hole haha :)

    I know what you mean, cause my Shure sounds mighty fine to me, but how much better does it get? I eventually want to get myself an Ortofon 2M Blue, to see if it makes much a difference. But I unfortunately have a lot of things to upgrade before my cart, so it’ll have to wait.

    If you were to try something new, I suggest looking at the nagaoka mp110 like I have. Hard to beat for the money and reviews put it close to that 540 for 1/3 the price.

    My grandpa found this at his friends house, who didn’t want it, so he gave it to me. Sony STR-D715. 2 channel integrated, which seems to have surround and center channels just for marketing reasons, as there are no specs or anything for anything but the main channels.100 WPC @ 0.3% THD. So the speakers are quiet. But the receiver hums rather loudly, making up for the THD almost from the Technics. :wink:
    Either way, it actually sounds quite nice, and I think it’ll stick around a while.

    I’ve had that for 2 years now. Built it myself, it was a kit but I didn’t use the instructions. :smile: I’m a bit of a Star Wars nerd, and I enjoy building LEGOs. But I don’t buy LEGO anymore, unless there is something I really want (like the Millenium Falcon.)
    I am thinking about getting the new Apollo rocket set, but I probably won’t get it, because I could use that money for things audio.
