Thanks grizz, I will look into these.
I understand the Shure V15 is a moving magnet cartridge. What does it mean in terms of my phono stage? (I was thinking of getting a dedicated phono preamp instead of going through the Urei to record)
Also, is this the reason you recomanded replacing the standard arm that comes with the 1210? You said to ask GSA about this, who's/what is GSA (sorry)?
I understand the v15's are discontinued and so are not easy to get hold of, but I'll search for one.
BTW - regarding the Grado Reference Platinum Wood, I actually found them for cheaper than the V15: http://www.toddthevinyljunkie.com/pr...duct.php?id=24
Maybe I'll get both for each one of my decks and find the best cartridge specifically for each song
