Used lightly for about 4-5 years. Just sent this cartridge to Soundsmith for a complete checkout prior to sale. Cartridge required a minor suspension adjustment, but was otherwise in great condition. Tracked flawlessly to 2.2 grams (50% over spec), and had no observable wear. Now has a clean bill of health.
Sound is very detailed and dynamic. It's not "soft," but it has no harshness or edginess whatsoever. It should provide many hours of enjoyment. Rated 7 due to age.
Will ship in Soundsmith's plastic mount, pictured.
