To sell my beloved Soundsmith Aida MI cartridge. I am the first owner which I buy through the soundsmith authorised dealer in Los Angels area around 16 months ago. I only use it for 150 hours. As you can see from the pictures,the cantilever is very straight and the stylus is very clean. It comes with the series number KWMC 570 hand engraved down for the brass area. Please feel free to contact me if you have any question.
