This reference quality Moving Coil cartridge was one of the last units available from Ortofon before the limited production was sold out and is no longer available This was one of three cartridges used in my VPI HRX Rim Drive Table and was by far the most accurate and enjoyable in my 2 channel system
Read the reviews, the A90 set new standards in accuracy, tracking, stereo image and is one of the top reference cartridges still used by many of the most respected audio reviewers.
I do not know how many hours I have on this cartridge and I don't know how others state their hours, but it was used lightly for the past year and was inspected as is considered in almost perfect condition with many years of incredible playback to go.
Read the reviews and check my feedback. I have a perfect review rating from buyers and you get exactly what you pay for and as described.
This is not an import, I bought it here in the US and it has all of the US packaging and accessories that came with the cartridge.
