It might be OK, but it may give you a slightly lower output.

Funnily enough the sx6m arrived today, must have been delayed in postage, now I have an sc5m and an sx6m, which one does everyone think would be the better cartridge?

See again my earlier comments as to the difference. Whilst one may have a slightly higher output than the other, the variation in the actual sound quality will be very hard to detect through the rather basic amplifier and the type of speakers in your Radiogram.

Thanks Edward, I will leave the ceramic cartridge in place and keep the sx as spare.
