I had a NIB VxMR and 2 NIB additional stylus. I had to crack 1 replacement when my housekeeper decided to dust the TT and of coarse bent the cantilever. I was never happy with the sound. It did not do well in my Rega P5 with RB700 arm. Sold the Cartridge w/stylus for $650 and extra sealed stylus for $450. Now I wish I had it to try in the AR ETL-1 or even the CJ Walker CJ5.
