Crutchfield customer from Maple Shade, NJ on 8/25/2021

First impression was disappointing, but that's because I didn't bother to align the cartridge, just popped it right on the tone arm for instant gratification. Alas, it sounded subdued, fuzzy, and distant, with no punch at all. So I printed out an online alignment protractor, and made the necessary adjustment, sliding the cartridge forward slightly in the head shell. What a difference a quarter of an inch makes! Now reasonably well-aligned, this baby sings sweetly. The sound is smooth across the entire sonic spectrum, with tight bass, crisp mids, and no upper range coloration or distortion. Background noise is virtually nonexistent on well-maintained vinyl. Best of all, there's absolutely no sibilance or inner groove distortion. I can't imagine a better cartridge at this price.

Pros: Smooth, clear, and precise sonic presentation, and no sibilance or IGD

Cons: None--just align it carefully
