I have never even seen a Decca much less listen to one, and I doubt I will ever get the chance to. But it is the only cartridge I would be "dying" to try. I think many of the older carts are hard to beat. A few of other vintage pickups are much better sounding than people might think.

Owned and really enjoyed one of these a long time ago - it was one of two cartridges that I spent enough time with and enjoyed enough to want to try 'em again. Panasonic EPC-451C was one -got it and it's still stupidly good. A Decca London is the other - I remember one of my co-workers coming into our store and stopping in her tracks "Wow-what is that ?" -was playing a Joni Mitchell album we had used a a demo record a LOT. A distinctly different reproducer.
