Summary: I bought this in 2010 and thought I was getting such a great deal for the price. Having heard so many great things about this cart, I was excited to try it on my SL-1200. At first, I noticed a slightly narrower soundfield and a more "sterile" sound, but from what I've read, that's normal with these carts, especially pending what kind of phono preamp you have (I use a Sansui 771 Reciever).
This cartridge has a worse signal-to-hum ratio than any other cartridge I've ever used.

Summary: I have 4 other cartridges (1 Numark and 3 Audio-Technica) and 2 turntables (1 Technics and 1 Numark). This cartridge has 2 big problems- Low output level and high susceptibility to hum. The first problem would be forgivable- a low output level can just be cranked up- if it weren't for the other problem. None of my other cartridges on either of my turntables produces _any_ audible hum.
