Grado Green2 Bundle
I ordered the plug-n-spin with the Green2. Nice upgrade from my original Shure Premier cartridge I've been using since the late 80's! I am pleased with the sonics of this new combo. The Grado really seems to be able to pull out the bass from my vinyl. I setup my turntable as accurately as possible (level platter, tracking weight, anti-skate, etc.) and have had no tracking issues that others seem to have with Grado cartridges. Decent upgrade without needing a second mortgage to buy it!

Excellent for mono LPs
I have a very large collection of classical music including a number of old late '50s/early '60s mono LPs, and for the latter, I purchased this cartridge [having always had good luck with Turntable Needles. I let it warm up a little by leaving it running in a lead-out track and then played through Beethoven's quartets [Pascal Quartet, Concert Hall]: the violins sounded smooth and the cello had a solid, resonant quality that was most pleasing. The instruments appeared to come from the center, between the speakers. After this, I played a number of other mono records: I don't have previous experience with a mono cartridge, but for the modest price I am certainly very pleased. As usual, this arrived promptly and well packed.
