Talking New cartridge for German brand vintage vynil player

Well, I would like to share my own experience regarding subject.

I have vintage vynil player of German brand ELAC, model Miracord 50H, made in 1974.

I've bought twice cartridge to replace original one from ebay like this (i.e. replica): https://www.ebay.com/itm/26030955624...sAAOSwbFhgoi8c

but this cartridge is shitty, it worked a couple months before starting of self-distraction.

I had to smoke subject during my previous vacation and found interesting information about Japanese brand JICO - https://www.jico-stylus.com/.

These guys products replicas for vintage vynil players.

My player receives 2 models: ST-444-17 and ST-344-17 (last one is higher).
As you may see it costs 56 USD (https://www.jico-stylus.com/shop/?fi...-number=STS344) plus delivery 27 USD, thus I paid 83 USD totally.

Alternative originals?

Well, I saw used ST-344-17 for unbelievable 200 USD plus delivery.

In result I ordered 1 JICO cartridge, I got it few days ago and now I have pleasure again to listen my small collection of vynil plates.

Default GutWire Cables

Cabling is on march now!

I've bought suddenly 3 GutWire Cables:

1.Top Balance Interconnect Consummate





2. Power Cable SV-16





3. AES/EBU Digital Interconnect SD-3SE





Power Cable SV-16 was installed before power regenerator SINWEX,
I had to use adaptor, because I had only european socket. But today I completed replacement of socket from European type to American.

Very nice and well done. I looked up Gutwire since I never heard of the company. Their products seem extremely well made and they seem to have an excellent reputation. Sergio, where and how in the world did you acquire this knowledge? I had thought I'd been around the audio block so to speak but I pale in comparison to you. Almost every piece of gear you feature is quite stunning but obscure. I have to look it up on the internet and even then sometimes (like the AES/EBU digital cable you display) I can't find a trace of it. Congrats on the beautiful cables.

Best

Charles

Default Next portion of GutWire

I received yesterday one more power cable - model X3. It's top cable in line "Cube".



Amazing cable as I may hear in preliminary.

Sergio, congrats! The cables are beautiful. Is there anyway you could show pics of your system? I went through all 48 pages. A Gutwire dealer in Ukraine is amazing. I live in Nashville. I think we are redneck hicks compared to you. If I mentioned Gutwire to my dealer he would I'm certain say he never heard of it. But here it is and it's an excellent and well established company with an office of all places in Ukraine. Amazing. It's not the cost of the gear but the audio knowledge and expertise necessary to create a great sounding system. And you have this in abundance.

Best

Charles
