Sorry here as I had forgotten to ask earlier. Why buy the 1000 series when we can have the latest 2000 series for about the same price. Thanks.
Although not heard the 2000 series myself the general consensus of some of the reviews I have seen that it has a bit of an unruly top end as per a lot of the newer MM cartridges. The 1042 is for the most part a nice smooth cartridge.
I had the Reson Reca version of this cartridge which have me a lot of enjoyment.
