Impressions
My expectations for this cartridge and needle combination was quite high. It has to fill the shoes of my daily driver for the last 12 years. The poor deceased AT 440 MLA that gelled perfectly in my system. Now we are dealing with different stylus profiles, Shibata vs Micro Line and a significant increase in tracking weight from 1.4g to 2g. With that said, lets dive in. Install was straight forward on my SMC 3009 MK II with its fixed head shell. Alignment matched the old 440 perfectly so no further adjustments needed there. Colour coding on the output pins would have been useful, but the enclosed doc solved that quickly. After about 10 hours of break in I would say that this one is slightly harsher than the 440 it replaced. Very detailed. It 440 was a bit more forgiving of a bad surface than this one. I attribute this to the stylus profile. That has been the only negative so far. This cartridge and stylus combo punches far above its price range. A capable work horse that should serve my system well for years to come.
