I’d be interested in this - I’ve got a Benz wood low output or a Koetsu Black. The Wood was retipped by Roberto Torlai and used for a few months before I changed over to a Benz LPS. The Koetsu was retipped by Dom at NW Analogue but I prefer the LPS so it only played 5 or 6 records.
I haven’t looked into relative values yet. What do you think?
I’d be interested but my problem is I am trying to avoid low output cartridges as I’d have to up my phono stage (ARC PH1) to a MC stage or use SUT’s. Neither of which I want to go down that road if possible.
In that case I’ve also got a Benz Wood high output (2mV iirc) which used to work very nicely into an Audion valve MM phono stage. It was re-fettled by Benz in Switzerland a few years ago (7? 8?) and has sat unused in a drawer ever since.
I don’t really fancy taking my LPS off the arm & having to re-adjust it again afterwards in order to test the Wood HO. However I’m happy to post it to you to try - if you like it we can talk about the swap. If not, just post it back. Send me a pm if you’re interested & we can sort addresses etc.
Ah OK, I don’t have a pc, so trying to remember what this site looks on one, but if you can see your avatar, at the top right of the screen which to me looks like an S in a blue circle, you need to sort that, click on it, and you shoud get a drop down, and in the drop down is an envelope icon, then you click on that and it should be straightforward.
If you don’t get the envelope it might be a forum trust level thingy which is probably related to post count…
