    Well you can guess what it may sound like. Probably surprisingly good.

    That's the beauty of using the Mission 774 arm. It will work well with any cartridge from ADC's to Deccas and various MC's with little messing about. And sound pretty damn good doing so. It suits me as I do like to chop and change carts and I don't want to run more than one arm or turntable (even though I have quite a few ).

    The ADC 25s have a compliance of 50cu, so need an arm having an effective mas of ~ 4g or lower.

    Rather than change arm wands, I change the entire arm, each of which are mounted on their own arm board. I have more than one turntable and a Decca is always mounted on one of them. (With the Decca Mk.III, that would be either in an upgraded Decca ffss (Super) arm, or on an SME 3009 using the D3 adaptor. Other Deccas are fitted to fairly heavy headshells and used with an SME with the damping dashpot fitted.)
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I've noticed the prices climbing steadily for these. Got a couple myself, Another wise investment!
    I reckon this will sell at the asking price. Steep though it is. There seems to be a fair bit of interest. Shown as having 14 'watchers'.
