This Benz LP-S is in mint condition, as good as new. It is the latest model. We used it only a week as a reference. It has not more than 3 hrs. total playtime, which is like nothing for this beautiful cartridge.
As a business we have to collect 8% TAX from buyers in California.
Information from the manufacturer's website:
The latest LP S incorporates a higher mass brass frame for improved coupling to tonearms, evolved ruby square plate generator and Ebony body. Brass, an alloy of copper and tin, complements Ebony, materials used for building musical instruments. The LP S has 50% more mass than the previous model for enhanced vibrational and resonant characteristics, thus revealing greater dynamic contrasts, deeper bass and increased resolution from all records. The latest LP S Class was the first Benz Micro to use the new Micro Ridge stylus, now found on all Benz Micro Swiss-made cartridges.
