New, unplayed ZYX Universe II X/SB2. The price on SORAsound is $8,990, including the optional $395 silver base, which I believe is crucial, though you could probably do nearly as well with a little $10 tonearm weight. Without the SB the price to $8495. zero hours. I opened the box to take photographs of the cantilever and stylus. The cantiliver is perfectly straight and the stulus looks good, as you can see from the magnified image I took with my iPhone loop. I'm selling this because I own the ZYX Airy 3, which is the best cart I've ever had in my system, and my wife has patiently explained to me that don't need this one. Read the many reviews. This the copper-wire version and it includes the silver base, a $395 option. In my experience, the Airy 3 benefited from the added weight of the base, so I expect the same would be true for the Universe II. It's also very VTF sensitive. I have read that it's also very VTA sensitive, but I never adjust that.
I will accept returns if the cart is defective (it's unplayed, so that it highly unlikely). I always offer returns and I'm proud of my excellent reputation on ebay, but this is a new, unused cartridge, so here I only will accept a return if the cart doesn't work. In any event, I will work to make sure that you are satisfied with any transaction we may have.
