I've had mine since 2003. Its a great tracking and sounding cart. Very refined.
I am using it with a DACT CT-100 phono stage that I acquired around the same time. Its very adjustable and fine sounding. Now its easier to obtain good sounding "inexpensive" solid state phono stages with enough gain for these types of carts, but back in 2003 not.
I have read and heard very many good things about thedv75, but I have not felt the need to change mine. Maybe at some point I will give it a try.
