In my estimation, one of the three most musically satisfying phono transducers made (along with the Air Tight PC-1 Opus and Clearaudio Goldfinger Statement). Cartridge was set up on a SME 30-12 turntable/tonearm by the renowned Andre Jennings (Jonathan Valin's analogue guru). Cartridge is less than 18 months old. I have played 134 albums since putting it into service which equates to around 100 hours if you figure the average album to be 45 minutes in duration. I am the original owner. The reason I am selling this cartridge is to purchase the Air Tight PC-1 Opus. Cartridge has been maintained in a non-smoking, non-child, non-pet environment. If you value musicality, natural timbre, wide bandwidth and 3D imaging; you can't go wrong with the PC-1 Supreme. Buyer to incur 3% transaction fee if using PayPal.
