SoundSmith Aida moving-iron phono cartridge (medium output)
Cartridge is in VG condition, probably around 700 hours. I am the original owner.  

From the manufacturer’s website: The Aida employs a single crystal Ruby Cantilever and our Optimized Contour Line Contact Stylus; we did this to resolve the challenges of playing the inner grooves with the same level of confidence as the outer. How did we do this? The result - a truly superb cartridge, surpassing top MC designs with air, focus and sound staging no cartridge at this price should be able to achieve.   

From Part-Time Audiophile:

“The Aida is actually stellar in any equipment combination... There is a strong family sonic resemblance between the Carmen and the Aida. Both have a smooth frequency response and a velvety midrange. The Carmen is a highly competent performer; however, the speed and articulation of the Aida puts it at an entirely different level. In short, I feel that the Carmen is one of the best in its price class of $800. That said, I find the Aida to be, well, more musically fulfilling, but I suppose that isn’t a surprise.”
