    I'm jamie.

    Default the postman came early today :)

    so ive been really enjoying the technics epa-305mc cartridge,somewhat rare,and even rarer in 'still sealed in the box' condititon.
    after my last new old stock purchase that turned out to have a bent cantilever i was a little nervous but sod it,he who dares wins rodney.

    it arrived today,and yes totally never been used,it comes with all the paper work,new technics headshell and weight. imagine having this and never being tempted to try it??

    anyone who's heard these no they are very good good,i now have a great cartridge to use on my pioneer arm,happy days!

    Excellent news. It took me a while to find an EPC-205 in good condition.
