I can safely say that VDH has fully exploited its natural talents and
build budget here to such an extent that I can easily exclaim this
cartridge to offer value for money. I know, sounds odd but you really
have to live with one for a bit to know what I’m babbling on about here.
Especially compared to some products I’ve heard. With the Crimson
Strad, you never feel, to paraphrase Johnny Rotten, that you’re ‘being
cheated’. Instead, you sit and listen and, as the time drifts by, you
learn more and more about your music collection. There is so many of
those ‘moments’ I mentioned above going on, in fact, that each LP really
needs half a dozen plays to pick everything up.
If I had to pick one element of the Crison Strad that acts as some

Positive Feedback rave by Robert S. Youman issue 94 Rave Review:
I found that the van den Hul Crimson XGW Stradivarius moving coil
cartridge was one of those few components that seemed to pair well with a
variety of systems, including both tube and solid-state. At an output
of .9mV, you get additional headroom and flexibility that will perform
admirably with almost any MC phono preamp. Most impressively, it also
demonstrated a level of coherence and tangibility beyond any cartridge
that I have heard in my listening room. Not much more to say than that.
