Bought new from dealer who also set it up for me. I rate this cartridge as a better version of the Air Tight PC-1 Supreme. A faster, more dynamic cartridge with tons of image density, space, and resolution. It's production and display of music is big, dynamic, fleshed out, and detailed. It's around 4 months old and it has right at 75 hours on it and every record it has touched was cleaned by my Audio desk Syteme cleaner. It sounds great loaded from 100-1000 and has a healthy .5 output. I have over 15 years positive feedback here and 7 years positive on usaudiomart. I'll cover shipping and PP fees in conus. or local pickup in N. Va.
