Cartridge is in excellent condition. Purchased in June 2017 as part of a bundle. Low hours. Just re-tipped at SoundSmith with a Boron cantilever so buyer is essentially getting a new cart. Had it re-installed for a few hours to test and it sounds great. This is the Hi Output Moving Coil version and is meant to be used with a Moving Magnet phono input. Throws a great soundstage and is very balanced. This cart will elevate a mid range table and arm and hold it's own with a high end rig.
