I purchased these carts based on the recommendations of several dozen fellow Djs and they were not wrong. Like any stylus, just slapping them on and expecting top performance will not deliver the results you will be (or should be) looking for. Be sure sure to balance your tonearm correctly. I use 3.5g weight on these needles, if you are not scratching and doing more mixing you can probably reduce that by up to a gram. Also ensure your tone arm is in parallel to the platter by using the height adjust on your turntable.
The first M447-H I purchased was the needle/cart combo. Fitting this to the headshell was simple yet entirely fiddly process (for me at least). My second purchase was the needle/cart/headshell combo which required no messing around at all and almost guarantees you are set up correctly (unless you want to mount the screws further to the back of the headshell or want to set it at the 23 degree angle for scratching with an S shape tonearm.
It'e easy to be tempted into dropping several hundred bucks on other needles but I assure you, these really do the business.
Not a lot really needs to be said, but this cartridge is the top pick amongst the majority of DJs I've worked with over the years. Most club DJs will swear by this cartridge, and personally I feel the best fit is with the Technics Headshell. Not to mention it looks slick installed on a black or silver model 1200.
To be fair, I should also mention that I've owned a variety of Stanton and Ortofon cartridges over there years - some for different styles of music, although the M447 does the job of all of them, and exceptionally well. The audio quality is superb across various genres and at this time it is my most heavily used cartridge. Naturally, I do have two pairs of this cartridge which all mount beautifully in the Shure Blue Cartridge Case which I also highly recommend. For backups I use the Ortofon Q-Bert and Digitrak cartridges, although the M447 is still my favorite.
You can't go wrong, this is a 5-Star product across the board!
