I've also noticed that certain records sound terrible when played with a
stereo cartridge no matter which stylus I use.
Then I tried the VRii and the RPJ-047 which also sounded better. The VRII
usually has a 2.5 mil and the RPJ-047 has a 3 mil.
Some old Columbia records give a slight warped sound with a stereo
cartridge, but not with either GE cartridcge.
