    I'm just wondering if anyone using one. I picked this one up used and trying to decide what range of cartridges I should look at? the other thing is that I don't think I have it high enough.
    I'm using a Shure V15 III on it no and the tonearm is sometimes scraping.

    That V15 is a poor match for this arm. Consider replacing with a lower compliance cartridge in range 10-20.

    I thought about the Denon but low output cartridges never worked out for me. I maybe crazy but I liked the 3009 on the thorens than I do this Ortfon
