Lyra Clavis DC MC Phono Cartridge. Has see limited use, sounds fine. Reviews: "I could live quite happily with this cartridge, both as a reviewing tool and as a music reproducer. It is built to extremely close tolerances, and offers outstanding control of mechanical resonances and superb trackability. The Clavis DC must be considered state-of-the-art in terms of build quality and technology. My original Clavis still functions perfectly and hasn't lost any of its sonic attributes after hundreds of hours of play and some rough treatment in and out of various arms under difficult test conditions. So while almost $1900 for a cartridge ain't small change, with proper care, this cartridge should last indefinitely when used with a first-class, properly damped tonearm. "The Clavis DC offers more detail, rhythmic snap, and transient precision than the original Clavis. So if you're looking to replace the older model with the newer one, I don't think you'll be disappointed with the upgrade. " Michael Fremer, Stereophile "It would be easy but imprudent of me to finish with some hyperbolic praise of this superb cartridge, which is what my enthusiasm encourages me to do. Instead I’ll simply observe that I’ve yet to hear a cartridge that can match the Clavis DC blow for blow. There aren’t many capable of giving nearly as well balanced, complete and insightful a view of music as this one does. "It exhibits a rare combination of musical and presentational qualities that put it ahead of other cartridges I’ve greatly enjoyed, all of which had some weakness – however slight – that detracted from my complete enjoyment of listening to vinyl. It’s this even-handedness and overall competence that makes the Clavis DC so outstanding and rewarding a companion. "In short, anyone who remains in awe of vinyl’s potential should prepare themselves for a pleasant surprise and audition the Clavis DC as soon as they can.
