Great steal!! That's the F-9 that I have. If you do some research you'll find that the Luminance Trace (F-9L) is probably the best stylus. They used it in the top of the line F14 and F15 exclusively. I think it was the F14 and 15.
I got a similar deal recently. I purchased a Yamaha TT that came with a Supex SD-900 Rosewood cartridge. It was broken, but fixable for $300. One fixed it's worth at least $2000. Not bad for $175 purchase. Who's jealous now? LOL.
well knock me over......
lets play who's is bigger......
i had an old old old Grado cartridge with a brocken cantilever,
sent it to Benz for a rebuild,
Herr L wanted it for his collection as he never saw one before...very special he said,
he gave me a (one of a kind) H2 'special' open air cartridge in exchange!
you can see it in the Benz gallery.
enough of that!
i will have to take a close look at the diamond then!
the output is higher than the other versions of the F9.
the cantilever looks bulkier than the E
too, in the photos of yours.
what is the difference in sound?
