As it's so difficult to audition cartridges, I went for for the 1012 because reports suggested the Gyger II stylus has a slightly warmer character than the Gyger S on the 1042 does. Whether it actually does, I don't know, but I'm very happy with it. I'd be interested to hear your take on the difference between them, Jon.

I bought a 1006 then a 1022 then got the 1012 stylus twice and still think it is really good. In a word the 1042 is more mellow but with detail. i prefer its sound.

Interesting, thanks for that Jon, maybe I should experiment with a 1042 stylus next time around; they're only about another £40 if I recall correctly.
