    I'll bet The Rock sounds a bit special. It just looks right.

    Those Sumiko cartridges always amaze me - I wonder if the cantilever's lifespan can be measured in days?

    Yes, the Rock sounds good, I have had it since 1986 and still don't want to upgrade it. The Sumiko was a bit scary when I first got it, it was second hand and has had a soundsmith retip

    Here's Anthony's Cranfield Rock. Yum Yum.. I saw one of these on Auction a couple years ago but it was too far away to pick up or i would have jumped at it.
