Here's my original Zyx Universe cart (copper .24mV, with silver base and attached nuts) that I've been using for about two years. It DOES have a skewed cantilever (not sure how it happened) but it still sounds great (about 85-90%
of original), the diamond tip is super sharp (see pic I managed to grab
of it), tracks well, and certainly sounds better than any other $1500
cart out there. There is nothing lacking in this cart as far as sound,it is classic Universe sound: super transparent, wide frecuency spectrum, nice taught bass...but the wonky cantilever does mean that you will have to fiddle with azimuth and VTA to coax the most out of it. In other words, on an arm with no azimuth adjust, you may have a slight channel imbalance, for example. I would prefer to sell along with my Triplanar arm (also listed) as it is a perfect match for this particular cart and it sounds great. And I am offering it at a discount if the two are bought together.
While it still sounds great as is, other options down the line include: trading it in to Sorasound for half off a new Universe II (or any lesser Zyx cart), or if it ever dies completely you can always have it rebuilt by Zyx (Mehran at Sorasound said it would probably be minimum $1200 fyi).
I have everything original and will cover domestic insured ground and PP fee.
