I would not recommend the Sumiko Rainier for DJ use! The tracking force is too light at 2g and the cantilever is unlikely to stand up to heavy DJ use and back-cueing. The Rainer is an entry-level MM cartridge for hifi use, similar to your Ortofon Blue or Red.\n\nOverall, I'm not a fan of the Pro-Ject tables, particularly the Carbon EVO, as the speed stability and W+F is poor and something you can easily hear on certain genres of music or poor presses. Not to mention they are very slow to get up to speed and to change from 33 to 45, let alone having to swap the belt for 78! For serious vinyl listeners, I highly recommend a direct-drive table, but of course these tend to be more expensive than entry-level belt drives, so I understand they are not for everyone.\n\nMy current ProJect tt that I have had for five years is great except for the cumbersome speed change. So I imagine i will be plenty happy with the Evo.
