Now to see how it settles in...
What's your set up?
What's your comparison to previous cartridge?
What Music ?
I'll post my second thoughts soon just trying some classical at moment
My setup is an SME Series II improved tonearm, on a large idler drive TT in a CLD plinth. My amp is DIY - all tube, SET, full range drivers with tweeters to supplement the top end.
My older carts have all been Shure, the latest being an M97xE. The AT is much more detailed, and has slightly better bass.
I have played Jazz, female pop vocal, orchestral pop/jazz, so far. I have yet to try classical.
