Dunno about the upgrade. I went from original 1980s Pioneer cart to this 2M Red and this is also the first time critically listening to a TT at all. The Pioneer cart was worn out and was giving me significant distortion in the upper mids and treble. This Ortofon is crystal clear except after some of the dust built up on the needle it got a bit dull, still better than the Pioneer ever was, but that's a temporary thing as I'll have clean new vinyl to play and look into record cleaning stuff.
