Default Re: EMT 938 cartridges

The EMT arm is good enough for most cartridges, except possibly the most compliant. EMT's own moving coils are OK but expensive - if you want to keep with MC, perhaps a Denon 103 would fit the bill - which, coincidentally, also has its roots in broadcast practice, being designed for NHK. The BBC used Ortofon Concordes of various types, and these worked well. The EMT headshell, incidentally, is not compatible with the SME type - the socket to mounting distance is shorter, and the contact pins are offset by 45 degrees.
