Sound: The sound quality is alright, I guess. I haven't heard it over a huge soundsystem, but in my bedroom, the sound's just fine I suppose. Feature: As another reviewer mentioned, the cartridge was packaged with some cool little tools. Ease of Use: It was a litle difficult to mount the first time around, but in the end, it's a cartridge...there's no way it could be hard to use. Quality: This is where my problem with this thing lies. After about two weeks of use the needle breaks off! I'm not even doing any heavy scratching or anything, just some back-cues and that's it. I've already had to replace one, and now the other one went. Garbage quality. Value: I give a five because you get what you pay for, I guess. At $34 would you really expect life-lasting quality...? Overall: Apparently, two weeks and I'm onto the next.

Back to Product Information
Sound: I'm not impressed at all with this cartridge. The statistics on the cartridge claim it to be clear accross the frequency range. This is totaly false. The cartridge produces a very "muddy" tone. It makes my records sound like AM radio quality. I would return the cartridge if I could. Feature: The cartridge did come with quite a few nice accesories such as a needle brush, cover and extra headshell wires. Ease of Use: This cartridge is a pain to put on the headshell with all of it's pieces and screwy screw system. Quality: The cartridge looks fairly sturdy. Value: This cartridge shouldn't have much value in my opinion. The Wow Factor: This cartridge doesn't have much as far as sex appeal. It does have a cool blue stylus. Overall: I was never satisfied with this cartridge and wish I had never bought it. I can't see anyone enjoying the audio produced by the cartridge other than those who enjoy the sound of AM radio.

Back to Product Information
Sound: cost aside, the overall response of the sound produced is very smooth containing a pleasant degree of warmth. not too much, not too little. Feature: came with everything you need to install it to a head shell and more. the little case is good for keeping all the accessories together. Ease of Use: installs like any other. Quality: tracks very well, in spite of some of the records i've put it on. (quite impressive really) installation screws go through the whole cartridge body. Value: for what you pay, you cant do any better. Manufacturer Support: the best support is not needing any, works great. The Wow Factor: not top end, but will definatly buy a second time for a playback turntable. Overall: i expect it to keep on working for quite a while, i am well pleased.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
