I retrofitted a vintage Grado Micro-Control tonearm to an AR XA TT. There are a couple of great threads over at Vinyl Engine extolling the virtues of high VTF. This cartridge tracks at 4.5g (yep 4.5g) and sounds awesome and there isn't a warped record it can't track. It was apparently the BBC's studio cartridge of choice. Highly recommended for a heavy mass tonearm



I put this cart on a Garrard Type AII record changer. It sounds really nice on old 33 1/3 RPM records. It's a good match for old players with heavy arms and high tracking forces. If you have some really old vinyl that doesn't sound good on your tweaked upscale setup, you might like this as an alternative.
