9/10 by markustubesnow

I'm on my third of these cartridges. I really enjoy them and they last a long, long time. The provide a very musical, well-balanced sound, with superb transient response, superb bass, treble and midrange. The track very well. Now that the price has basically doubled, I'm in a bit of a quandary about what I'll replace it with.

This is a nice sounding and great tracking cartridge!

Very fine detail retriever, lean sound, an immaculate performer on my DV501 arm.

Best match with Empire 698, because this cartridge only 5.3 gram and medium high compliance
so it need a light sensitivity tonearm to match.
The ultimate VTF is 1.7 g, not 2.0g as maker recommend
A real gem

A very fickle beast to setup due to the short cantilever, however rewards with a very even and honest presentation of what is on the disc.
