For Sale: Stanton 500 MkIII with NEW Genuine Stanton stylus

Post by BMRR » 28 May 2019 17:37

For sale: a lovely and somewhat uncommon Stanton 500 MkIII with a brand new genuine Stanton D70E stylus.

This cartridge is unique for two reasons:

• The MkIII version was made especially for Thorens, the German manufacturer of audiophile turntables. It will, of course, work with any turntable capable of using a half-inch mount stereo magnetic cartridge, but the fact that it was chosen by Thorens for their turntables should tell you something about its quality.

• It comes with a brand new genuine Stanton D70E stylus. This is not a DJ stylus; it is a hi-fi stylus featuring a superbly polished elliptical diamond mounted on a low-mass cantilever, and it has a gentle tracking force of 1.5 to 2 grams, delivering high quality audio with ultra low record wear. I removed the stylus from the box only so I could inspect it, photograph it, and briefly test it with the cartridge body. The cartridge and stylus work exactly as they should and sound fantastic!

The specs are outstanding even by today's standards:

Frequency Response: 10 Hz to 25,000 Hz
Output Voltage: 4 mV
Channel Separation: 35 dB
Channel Balance: less than 1.5 dB

The price is $60 and I'll include free shipping within the U.S.
