I stumbled across this one, while looking for alternatives. At $300, I was out of the game. You can buy a Nagoka 200 in a headshell for a bit more than that. And I am alternating between my 110 and an Ed's Red with a hyperelliptical stylus upgrade from LP Gear. It is surprising how good it is.
I sold mine for $70 around 2010. I didn't think it was that great, it sounded like a vintage CD player almost. Bright, thin, lacking in dynamics...Just IMO and tastes will vary. I like cartridges to have a bit more "tone" ala Zyx or Soundsmith. For real cheap the M97xe with proper capacitance loading (I rarely hear people do this in threads discussing entry MM carts) is nice.
Why are we obsessed with this cartridge? It's an old AM radio cart, made for great big tonearms. Certainly the world has come up with something better since then????
