Soundsmith Aida Ebony Cartridge. This is a moving iron, medium compliance model in excellent condition functionally and cosmetically. It has a ruby cantilever and a contact line nude stylus. I am the original owner. It has 700 hours on it. I have never had any issues with this cartridge, it has preformed beautifully with my Triplanar/Garrard 301. Soundsmith offers a premium retip on this cartridge for $350. The cartridge has plenty of life as is but this would would certainly be a great option to consider for the long run. The retail of this cartridge is currently $1800. They were $1000. initially but Soundsmith raised the price of all their cartridges a few years ago. I have taken great care of this Aida and all my records have been cleaned on a VPI 16.5. Check my feedback and buy with confidence. I have the original wood box for safe shipping. Thanks for looking.
