I purchased this cartridge new, in March, as a backup for my regular cartridge, as my old one needed to be retipped. After carefully mounting it, I only played perhaps 2 LPs while waiting for my original cartridge to be returned. I was going to keep it as a permanent backup, but have instead decided to sell it to purchase more gear! (sound familiar?)
As you can tell from the photos, the cartridge is in 'as new' condition with less than 2 hrs. of playing time. I can say it lives up to the classic Dynavector sound, which I have loved for years - translucent, vivid mid-range, with powerful mid-deep bass. With complete break-in, this particular sample will be a true winner.
