Bottom Line:   
This is a must for the price, a little bit to bright, but with a great overall sound stage, I have this on a Pro-ject RM 1.3 and through a Mcintosh and four Bose 901's this cartridge gives what it takes to make me happy, specially when it come to loud and true.

Bottom Line:   
A beautiful cartridge for classical - no idea what it is like for other music. I am now on my second, and when it is worn out will buy a third without hesitation - provided my pension keeps coming in. It has richness without unwanted colour, enough bass, and huge musicality. Only the exposed sensors make me nervous when installing it, but a glass of cabernet steadies the nerves. Well, all right, gamay if there's no cabernet handy. Currently used in a Linn Basik arm (prehistoric) on a Gyrodeck SE, but soon to be transplanted to a Tecno. Can't wait. Although at my age you have to.
