I've got a Thorens TD160 with a Grace 707 arm. I need to repair a crack in the headshell and then track down a new Nagaoka MP11 / MP110 stylus after the kids trashed the previous one 3 days after I fitted it
It runs into a 1990's Cambridge P40. For speakers I use Gale 3010S - they are a metre away from me in my tiny office - anything meatier causes the room to reverberate
If anyone knows where to get MP110 styli from at sensible prices I'd be pleased to hear - they seem to be almost the price of a cartridge.
There's a nice Grace F9 cartridge on eBay with would go nice with that classic arm. I had one for a while on a Mitchell Syncro / Linn Basik V, and it was one of the most natural, transparent cartridges I've ever heard.
Tintin, you're bonkers mate, if you want an even worse performing format to collect, try 8 track
