This is a new, Denon DL-304 that has 25 hours on it to evaluate in my VPI 10.5i arm. Sounds absolutely FANTASTIC !
It can make your hair stand on end, that "OH WOW" moment. Unbelievable micro-dynamics, fast without ANY sibilance, bass slam that has no artificial overtones, very very accurate cartridge with tonality that is just right. Tracks at 1.2 grams.
You need a good step up transformer or high-gain MC preamp (a Jolida or Linto work quite well) to really get the most out of this.

I ended up with a $2,000 cartridge which matched my electronics better. (my tube type phono preamp needs a .5mv output).
