I started collecting vinyl about 7 years ago and have owned multiple turntables and multiple cartridges. This one has completely floored me! I have been looking for a specific sound when listening to my records and I have finally found it. This cartridge is the stereo separation king! There may be higher-end carts that do it better but for the money, this is the best I have ever heard. You add that on top of the soundstage and openness this cart offers and you have a real winner. The previous cartridges I have owned are AT-VM95e, AT95EX, VM540ML, Ortofon 2M Red. Just to give you an idea of my experience (which is limited)This is my first MC cartridge and I am pretty confident in saying I can never go back to MM. There was nothing wrong with any of the cartridges I owned, the VM540ML was an absolute beast and I strongly believe for the money it is the best cartridge out there. This is just on another level. I have stereo separation on my speakers I have only experienced while wearing headphones. If you are on the fence because this is an expensive cartridge trust me you will not be disappointed!
Setting up a new cartridge is not a simple task. It is fiddly and needs to be very precise. I finally decided to buy the Audio Technica AT-LH11H Headshell and that made it so much easier.
This cartridge feels extremely well built
