    Cartridge run in

    I would keep playing albums - up to the 30 hr-ish mark. Then decide. And up the VTF a bit- which has been suggested. It may be that you just dont like the Black. I do, but understand why a lot of folk dont. Cartridges (and speakers) are a very personal thing.

    Cartridge run in

    My 2M Blue and (present) Black took about 30 hrs to run in. Oddly the 2M Bronze only took about 15 hrs. TME is does exist. 2M's like a lower capacitance, it was the older VMS era carts which needed higher. I used a CAP210 with my VMS 30 - decades ago.

    Stupid question: What's the difference...

    I'd agree to a point - changing the arm on my old skool 1210 addressed this imbalance. Regas come equiped with a much better arm IMHO. I've used a RB300 and now a Tabriz, both improved greatly on the Techy arm.

    New cartridge

    Probably no advantage, except to stop the nagging at the back of your mind.

    I use a psu1 with my Era Gold V. It was a worthwhile upgrade and recommended.

    Beware:: This tweak/change worsened my sound

    5 years ago I moved my system from my big lump of glass and iron to a lovely lightweight table. Sounded broken. No, I really thought I'd broken something. Moved it back and joy was restored. That and a f**k awful NAD dac/headphone amp. Truly horrible sound. Couldn't wait to move it on. Those and re-capping stuff (not crossovers)- don't bother. Happy now?
