Plenty of info out there regarding the various replacement stylii you mention. The middle priced one would work and the low price one appears to be a conical stylus. Worth the extra $10 if your table is in good shape. Have fun!!

So the top one isn't even elliptical? I was confused that they would even offer a non-elliptical needle.

Do you think it's worth the extra $30 to get the genuine Ortofon stylus?

Get the new belt installed and see how the old Dual works before spending $$ on a replacement stylus would be my advice. Going for the Ortophon stylus at the price Dave found would probably be the best way to go. The reason a conical, on average, creates less wear on a record is because it functions its best without any sort of critical setup. The more exotic stylus shapes can dig more information out of a groove but require careful setup by an experienced hand to function their best.

i second crash.

it's all a matter of perspective. Take that perspective and add that to the time you will actually be using the turntable, divided by the value you place on that experience.




I know I have one of the closest to tube sounding solid state/digital set ups out there. I only really appreciate it about 20% of the time. The rest of the time it's just there.
