Location: Fort St. John, BC. Perhaps the technology of MM carts hasn't evolved as far as some might think or it boils down to personal preference.
The exception is a Shure as well, a M97xE. The M95ED is right up there running a close 2nd. Happily it still looks and performs like new.

Location: MI. Sound is subjective, but Very flat response and neutral IMO. The only negative is real original stylus are rare and expensive and aftermarket shibata' s get mixed reviews and are expensive. Location: Dallas. The question that comes to my mind is - What is expected to be better? Can it be expressed or defined? Location: Northeastern USA. I use a DL, which is identical to the early 80s design, the is a 60s design, and the Ortofon SPU is even older. Even the 2M series you mention is a direct descendant of the OM series.
All of these exist happily on the market usually in the same price bracket they were launched in. Sure there are some crazy new carts like the DS audio offerings but those are the minority. Location: Panama City, Florida.

No one was Vintage phono cartridge to it with a Patricia heaton nude ass stylus. The coils were different, the cantilever was different, the magnets were different, the wire was different.
Tonearms were heavier everything was different. The Blue is a nude elliptical. It will give a nice amount of detail without overwhelming. Try it instead of your Bronze or Black stylus.

Interesting that the OP stokes a fire and leaves the scene. Failing to provide any description of sound at all about either of his systems cartridges, new or old. Yet asks others to explain what he has not even identified or even suggested. OK, that is highly subjective. Then they go further still and suggest that modern cartridges are not as compatible with older recordings due to the recordings and mastering of the time.
While I do believe that there is some credence to recording and pressing plants producing discs that were to be used with then Massive bbw latina nude production cartridges, that in itself does not suggest that improvements on the playback system could not or have not yielded improvements in the fidelity of that playback.
A couple of things are true in the history of recording and record production as well as in the history of phono cartridge production.
One is that there have been and will always be crap recordings and great recordings. Playing these better recordings with cartridges having different levels of resolution will yield different levels of fidelity.
It is also true that these same cartridges can reveal faults in recording and pressing practices as well as overall disc condition.
Then we will find that there were also crap and great cartridges produced. The same is true today as different as Dynavector and Crosly anyone? So we can't really make fair generalizations as the OP has prompted. This is evidenced by the pursuits of purists in Japan and in Europe who invented their advanced stylus profiles and cartridge assemblies to retrieve all of the information present on recordings of the time Boob massive mature Van den Hul, Vintage phono cartridge, etc.
So Hi-Fi is a progressive art of design, and it improves in general, with time due to advancements in that art, which is based on current science, materials, and mfg techniques. Despite this evolution, there will always be examples of excellent past works. The issues with these will often be age related. KT88Oct 7, I was Vintage phono cartridge to Jaco Pastorius album.
