    Originally had a Super Ortofon OM10 Cart. Upgraded the stylus to a 20. The difference is HUGE! Less pops and clicks, and the mid range seems more clear. Bass is tighter and less "boomy." The 10 is still a great stylus, but once you upgrade to the 20, there is no going back. Sonically like moving from a SDTV to a HDTV!



    Can't believe how much depth and soundstage I gained moving up from the 14 to the 20. Makes me wonder what the 30 sounds like. WOW a beautiful upgrade to my Pro-ject TT! highly recommend.



    Great upgrade from the OM10. Very forgiving; a great tracker. Nicely detailed. Gives an excellent presentation of jazz, pop, folk, especially vocals, and it can rock, as well. Nice base extension without getting woofy. Cymbals shimmer. The acoustic of the room in which the recording was made is quite in evidence. Not quite as clear and open with the complexities of orchestra at full tilt, though. Looking forward to moving up to the 30 when the time comes for a new stylus, but this has been well worth the money.
