Mm Cart for Aro?

Gammaboy posted:

I am using an Adikt on an ARO and think it sounds great, very musical. Playing it through a Lejonklou Gaio (soon to be Slipsik 6) into a SN2. I believe the Lejonklou phono preamps are built with the Adikt in mind. Excellent value for the money.

Linn Uphrik is also a great phono for the Adikt. It's even better because you can adjust a loading on an MM cart.

Sorry for the delay in reporting back on this guys, it's been busy!

Ok, so to start with I fitted up my Audio Technica AT95e as it was all I had to hand, and I must say it sounded very nice.  It's certainly no slouch that cart and offers excellent sound for it's modest outlay.  I have recently acquired an old but mint Dynavector DV-20X2, and subsequently fitted it up last week and this is a step up in SQ.  I am pleased with the results!  Annoyingly I thought I had MC cards spare for the 32.5 but only have another set of MM, but the DV works with these as it's a high output cart.  Would there be any benefit swapping out to MC cards?  

Also I noticed my Sondek has some wobble and I've traced it down to the motor so I am going to fit a new motor to increase stability also.  Sounds bloody cracking at the moment though!!

No. Only the low output version requires MC cards.

Congrats Lewis.

DV works well on the ARO. After the K9 I briefly tried the X20 on the Basik Plus  ( my first Sondek ) Later I tried Dynavector 19A on the ARO. It worked out much better. ( incidentally I still have this cartridge! )


Later if you want to go up on a Dyna ladder and switch to an MC, they all work well with the ARO.

Enjoy your journey.

 

I'm really glad this thread came up. I had been thinking for some time about a replacement for my ageing Goldring 1042. Saw the reference to the Audio Note IQ3. Had one fitted today by the splendid Jack at Audio Barn. Listening to JJ Cale right now - stunning even though it's only been playing for an hour or two. More of everything I always liked about the 1042. Not cheap for a MM at £700 - but I'd say well worth it. I feel a vinyl fest approaching.
