Ruby 3 cartridge with gyger S stylus. Winner 2005 and 2006 Absolute Sound Editors choice award. I purchased this on Audiogon 2 years ago, the seller stated about 200 hrs of use. I have used it between 100 to 200 hrs. I have check the serial # with the distributor and this cartridge was originally sold in 2008, so it is 4 yrs old and it has the S class gyger stylus. The new S class carts use the micro ridge stylus. The cart is in excellent condition with a perfectly straight cantilever and the stylus shows no wear. This is a low output cart. so you will need a high gain phono stage or a step up transformer.
The Benz trade in allowance for this cart is $1600 towards a Ruby Z and $1750 towards a Benz LP, which is very generous.
This is a very good cart and I am only selling because I have upgraded to a zyx universe and this cart now needs a new home. These normally list around $1300, I am pricing it lower to move it along. Low ball offers will be politely ignored.
Cart comes with original packaging and paperwork, add 2% for Paypal.
