I have a like new Benz Micro Ebony LP with the newer micro ridge stylus. This cartridge was purchased about 1.5 years ago directly from a Benz dealer while I was traveling in Switzerland. There are several reasons why this cartridge has so few hours: 1) I travel extensively for my job as a Senior Research Climate Scientist, and 2) I purchased a Koetsu Urushi Wajima, Transfiguration Proteus and Lyra Atlas that have need in rotation far more than the Benz. While I preference several cartridges more, the Benz LP definitely has a mid range magic that is incredible on my new LInn LP12. As can be seen in the photos it comes with all new packaging, paperwork and hardware. Hate to see it go but I and intending to put funds into another TT upgrade. Cheers.
