About Conical/Spherical & standard Elliptical only. What do you think is best in general for regular playback of LPs/45s, good condition & worn?. I am using a Goldring Elan cartridge, which is conical. I also have a spare Elliptical Elektra stylus from another cartridge. The Elan/Elektra share the same body/output, but i find the Conical Elan sounds best, better/higher output for some reason. The Elektra has probably had about the same amount of use, so it is not a worn tip. I know elliptical tips are meant to produce better high frequency, but at the expense of greater record wear. The Conical tip giving less wear & being better for worn records/45s. What is your take?.
