    I can't tell you how much I like this cartridge mounted in my VPI Traveler v1. Recommended by an audiophile friend that shows his speakers at many of the big audio shows. Wonderfully warm midrange, open, live sounding top end, nice deep well defined bottom along with a very nice 3D imaging. Fabulous clarity, with no edge. Also, explosive dynamics like the 5k cartridges deliver. My friend was right about this cartridge, and I am totally pleased. Well worth its price. I am a paid musician, and have had quite a few other musicians listen, and all have been shocked at how much music and great sound can come out of that tiny groove.
