Highly regarded ZYX Airy 3 R-1000 SB MC cartridge in excellent condition. The only imperfection is some very light discoloration on the top metal plate. This is not visible when the cartridge is mounted, but I always opt for full disclosure.
Low hours. I bought this from a fellow A-Gonner who was the original owner. This gentleman has a stable of outstanding cartridges and was thinning the herd when I bought this last Fall. He claims to have put less than 200 hours on it. I put about 50 on it and the performance was fantastic with my VPI Aries 2/JMW 12.7.
If you are reading this ad, then you are probably already aware of this cartridge's fantastic reputation. Low noise, crystal clear highs, liquid midrange, and deep articulated bass.
