According to this, the cartridge range for the Type 8 is 2-8 grams, but I believe the 8C can accommodate heavier cartridges due to its split counterweight.
I'm seeking suggestions for a cartridge to complement my newly acquired Breuer. Budget is up to $6K, but I have a little flexibility. I already have a XV1-t on a Schroeder CB, so am seeking a different sound. I listen to a lot of jazz, pop, rock, electronica and singer-songwriter. Thanks!
I own an older pair of Jeffrey Jackson's Experience Music Type 50 monos, which I believe are somewhat similar to the Emia Type 50's. I use them to drive my 3-way horns that are approximately 107db efficient. I love them. In fact, someday I may inquire about upgrading to silver transformers.
