Q
What is the break in period for the Sumiko Olympia cartridge?

I had no break in period. I cleaned my records good, then it was just music to my ears, nice and crisp.

James, I purchased the Olympia but never installed it. I bought it based on the sound of the Pearl which I liked much better than the 2M Red. I had plans to buy a second turntable and wanted to use the Olympia in it.
