Here`s for sale a VERY rare find.
"The final" cartridge was produced by Final Audio in Japan. The condition is outstanding and the sound is perfect.
The Final is to this day considered as one of the best MC-cartridges ever made, regardless of price. It`s in the category of Audio Note Io-j, Lyra Atlas and Ikeda Kai. The sound being closest to the Audio Note.
This cartridge was imported from Japan. Tax and VAT has been payed to the EU.
The Final cartridge was built by Final Audio in Japan in the 70+80ies.
Back then Final Audio was one of the top high-end Audio equipment manufacteurers in the world. They also produced outstanding amplifiers.
The Final cartridge weights 14,65g in total. It outputs 0,25mV. It plays optimally into a resistance of 20-25 Ohm, but works very well at any load from 20-50 Ohm.
The Final cartridge has an innovative and completely different built into the cantilever cut from a single 1K diamant. The developer recieved several patents on the constructional design itself. It will never need re-tipping, unless you damage it.
From personal experience - playing on a Melco turntable, reference tube amps and my Pioneer TAD 2402 speakers, it outperforms almost any cartridge in the world because of its clarity and dynamics. The music sounds extremely "live" and musical. It swings. I simply find it hard to sit still while playing the Final cartridge. I am only selling the Final as I have bought an Ikeda 9GSS, the only cartridge I`ve heard to outperform the Final.
The cartridge can be seen and heard at my home in Copenhagen. I have two tonearms and It`s possible to A/B test the two cartridges, if wanted.
The price is 3300,- US $ (20.000,- DKK). Worldwide shipping by private courier is included in the price. I will ship the cartridge in a custommade wooden box for safe shipping.
I can accept cash at pickup or wire transfer. No Paypal
