Hey guys,

I've been using Shure M44-7 carts for a few years now, but their distribution in the UK has been a bit flakey recently.

So a couple of months ago I decided to try something different - Ortofon's MF7, which goes for around the same price as the Shure. And (spoiler alert), I'm pretty impressed.

I've shot a quick video about them here:

Whilst my focus is on DVS performance for myself, I figured it's not right to compare carts without a proper A-B audio test, so there's a link in the description to a downloadable wav file comparing the two.

I'd be interested to know what you guys think, and if any of you have tried the MF7s for yourselves.
