Raising money for an ultra-rare record, so up for sale is a cream of the crop Haniwa HCTR-01, with <100 hours use. Comes with everything as new. This was a $5,000 cartridge a few years ago, before the release of the marginally upgraded MKII. It's hard to improve on a cartridge this good. The highlight here is the ultra low impedance and inductance, while still maintaining a solid 0.35mV output.
The HCTR01 readily competes with any cart at any price, and this one is about as like new as you are going to find it. I listened to it for a few weeks when I first got it, then stored it in my safe as a backup to my much more expensive ZYX cartridge I ended up with. So realistically it probably only has about 50 hours total use, but I'll say 100 to be safe.
