Ortofon Kontrapunkt B. Moving-coil cartridge. Fantastic sounding with everything from classical to rock. I used this with a few different phono preamps, all sounding great. Likes to see a load from about 100-200 ohms to sound its best. I am the original owner and estimate 600 hours total playing time. Stylus should be good for at least 1500-1800 hours. So, plenty of life left.
