@bastlnut,
Ooooooh, that Empire had very few samples built. It is an extremely rare item. Happy Listening to you.

b50,
Thanks...its a very nice cartridge stock but very, very good retipped. Its one weakness in stock form was a bit of grain in the upper frequencies when presented with heavily modulated passages. After retipping its clear, clean and extremely well balanced (without any hint of strain/congestion). Highly recommended if you come by one.

Ed
