    Ortofon Quintet Black mc here for someone https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ortofon-Q...8AAOSwkJ1e5TJz

    It is the original with the boron cantilever. The later versions have a sapphire cantilever instead (Quintet Black S), due to a global shortage of boron, so Ortofon decided that the boron would be for their mc's above the Quintet Black.

    I've had one of these and they were/are regarded as an mc bargain at new price and I can only agree.

    Shibata stylus, boron cantilever, it is quality and a quality performer.

    Detailed, smooth, balanced - think a refined upgrade over the excellent 2M Black mm.

    Doubt you'd get a better mc at 425, so if you've ever wanted to try one.... Seller accepting offers as well, so this probably could be had for 400

    I messaged the seller - who I do not know incidentally (he has 100% positive feedback over 995 transactions). He replied immediately as below:


    Hi
    Yes the Quintet Black is the first version. It s in excellent condition as I've kept it as a spare. It s been used lightly for around 50 hours so plenty of life ahead of it.

    Don't be tempted. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MISSION-7...kAAOSwZwld0vUL

    This is not 'the' Mission 774 arm. It's a 774 LC, a budget item from Japan and would normally sell for around 100.

    I remember when you could buy a new Acos Lustre GST-1 arm for 39.95 (an ADC 10E Mk.IV cartridge cost the same and was probably the better bargain). This was about forty years ago though .

    Just looking on ebay for a few bits and bobs and came across this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Thorens-T...YAAOSwW4Jd8rf- it's got the rare R version don't you know so obviously that makes it far more valuable, what a muppet


    As the late Colonel Sanders once said

    To be fair the SME "-R" arms are difficult to find and will be expensive (a cursory look on the web showed few available, and all were priced at well above $1,000).

    That said, the asking price of 1,200 for the complete TT and arm does seem to be on the high side.

    So can I. In fact I bought a second ADC 10E Mk.IV off ebay about a year ago for almost the same amount.
