I have rare Linn Arkiv cartridge for sale. This is 0.4mV moving coil type. The cartridge has removable jacket. It allows easy to adjust to different mass arm. The nude body version adds more room and air. Sound perfect with tube gear. Very dynamic and fast.
The cartridge has 150 hours and is in near MINT condition. It should play up to 5000 hours with no problem. Cantilever is straight- stylus sharp as it should be. The cartridge comes with Akiva boxes, bag of mounting ware and papers.
This is the last one with boxes I have. This are Linn Arkiv in Akiva boxes. Not Arkiv B, just Arkiv. (There were no Arkiv A. I request explanation about Arkiv cartridges from Linn directly. The response was: Linn Arkiv was made by Scan Tech(Lyra) to Linn specifications. The numbers from 1000 to 5999 were Arkiv. The numbers from 6000-9000 were Arkiv B). The cartridges I got from UK Linn dealer. I bought 30+ Arkiv, Troika, Karma, Klyde, Asaka, K-9, K-18). All in NM condition. All have 100-150 hours of playtime.

Before the introduction of the Akiva now selling for $4000 in the UK, the Arkiv was Linn's top moving coil cartridge. It shares some of the Troika features, but has way better tracking and sonic presentation. The Arkiv was made by Lyra with Linn specs.
