Beautiful Audio Note Io Gold MC phono cartridge *and* AN-S8 silver-wired SUT for sale!

I purchased the Io Gold about two (2) years ago from Nick Gowan at True Sound in Campbell, CA but have only played a few records because—at 20g—it’s a little bit heavy for my tonearm, so I need to get a lighter cartridge.

The Io Gold has an unusually low output (0.04mV), so it tends to work best with a very-low impedance (~3 Ohm) SUT going into an MM-level phono stage.

For that reason, I would prefer to sell the Io Gold with the matching Audio Note AN-S8/L low-impedance, silver-wired SUT with internal Audio Note Silver Tantalum resistors soldered in place internally by Nick Gowan, for proper loading of the Io Gold.

The sound quality of the pair is exquisite and they do match each other perfectly. Feel free to ask me any other questions! Thanks very much.
