Help with Cartridge/stylus ID (Technics SL-D2)
I bought a Technics SL-D2 at a garage sale 10 years ago for my daughter. She recently 'upgraded' to a new TT and I've inherited the Technics.
It sounds 'OK', but there is very little bass, even from brand new 'audiophile' vinyl.
I'm wondering if it needs a Stylus and/or Cartridge refresh. I've tried my best to adjust the cart.
I don't want to be chasing red herrings, so thought I should figure out the currently installed Cartridge/stylus.
The Cartridge has a "MA 20" on the face. The stylus is labeled with "Shure HE".
I know there has been 100's of hours of listening since I bought the TT used at the garage sale for $10.
