Although low cost, that replica ADC stylus is not bad at all. 

The replica actually is good. I don't have change to listen to the original ADC but this is no and no complain.
By the way, I found another TT (Technics) for $10. The diamond stylus still looks good and it sounds good too!!! This TT has GND cable.

This is turning into 

 

 

How low can you go :evil:

 

competition in finding the best price for a functioning TT with usable stylus & GND cable - LOL !

 

Enjoy your new addition :cool:.

 

On the other side of the ADC rainbow - that transparent stylus is sublime ... - wish I did not have it as a passing guest only !

In plain English - top of the line ADC stylus, the almighty and by now next-to-impossible to get Astrion. The ultimate stylus for the style of ADC cartridge in your possession.

 

Can turn your vision red(ish) upon finding by how much - yet again for n-th time - has the price risen since the last known sale was made and another even more rarer has turned up for grabs ... Still worth every dime, though.

Any thoughts on how much of an upgrade the Ortofon Black and or Bronze Cart is over the Blue? 

 

I'm currently using the Ortofon Blue with the Technics SL-1200 MK2 seriously considering an upgrade

I just upgraded to the Black from an Elys40 and Exact 2. I haven't heard the Blue so I can't offer a direct comparison. The Black has much better instrument separation than the Elys40 or Exact. Instrument separation with the Exact was clearly better than the Elys40, and the Black is clearly better than the Exact. Energy wise, the Elys40 was the dullest sounding, whereas I find the Black and Exact to be similar. Caveat: I ruined my Exact so I can't do direct comparisons -- only from memory. In hindsight, I wish I had skipped the Exact and jumped straight to the Black.

The Black is a nude shibata while the Blue is a nude elliptical, so I can safely say there would be one hell of a difference. The Bronze is a fine line, so the jump to Black over Bronze is less obvious

Blue is nude elliptical, Bronze nude fine Line and Black nude Shibata. Bronze should be appreciably better than elliptical, the diff from Bronze to Black should be comparatively smaller increase in quality.

 

There is another aspect - 2M series, although interchangeable across entire line ( you can use whatever 2M stylus with whatever 2M body ), there are differences in bodies.

Red/Blue share less sophisticated body, Bronze/Black feature top level. 

 

 

There is even a silver wire version 2M in existance (never saw one in flesh) : http://www.ebay.de/itm/ORTOFON-MM-TONABNEHMER-2M-SILVER-MIT-SILBERSPULEN-SILVER-COILS-/311107053985?pt=Plattenspielerzubeh%C3%B6r&hash=item486f6ce9a1
