I'm thinking that the Blue stylus on the Bronze body, might be a very nice combination, since the Bronze body is a the better engine. Having athe Bronze and Black cartridges, I find that they are both excellent. The black is more organic in nature and has more bass than I have ever heard from any cartridge or stylus, not excessive, but really there, in a way that you would not expect from from a record. But the Black, having more detail than the Bronze, will dig up more detail than the Bronze and you will want to use the Black with new records or while playing records which are more in pristine condition. The Bronze cartridge, which was on the Thorens when I bought it, is a nice all around cartridge, it doesn't seem to do one thing specifically well, but it does everything nicely. On some older records, they don't seem to sound right with either stylus. It also may be because the records have more wear on them or just that, they were never intended to be played with an overly nice stylus. Back in the 60's and early 70's, a really nice stylus was an elliptical stylus and most of the older stylus designs were conical. For these records, I think a stylus that was more like what someone would be playing records back in the day, might make them sound more like I remember them sounding. There are records that I really enjoyed back in the day, that I don't enjoy as much today. A good example is the Tijuana Brass, which on my equipment is sounding a bit too harsh and detailed. I heard some of these same albums over someone's house several years back, being played on a vintage ear system, because that is the system that he still had, and I thought that they sounded quite nice. I think that the Monitor 70's would work well for vintage records, as they are nice but not overly detailed speaker's and would be a good match with a turntable that has the Blue stylus on it. If you do acquire a Bronze cartridge an mount is in it's own headshell, than you could pop in the Blue stylus and see how the Blue stylus sounds with the Bronze body. It would be an interesting experiment? The Red/Blue cartridge puts out 5.5 mV and the Bronze/Black puts out 5.0 mV, so the Blue will have a slight decrease in volume on the Bronze body, but not by very much.
