    Nice one, Jamie. Sexy cartridge (and a quality thing, sonically)!

    well i have been using it now for 2 weeks and its very good,id rate it much higher than the denon 103sa. its seems to do everything well,i cant fault it really,its such a shame that its week point along with other technics cartridges is that the rubber damper can go soft and sticky which in turn makes the cantilever ride low or pissed,i was concerned about this even with it being NOS as time is the factor with the rubber not use.

    i can say that my one doesn't suffer from this at all.
    i paid a lot for this cartridge but to me it was worth it,its one of the best i have heard in my system to date.

    ther's one for sale here if anyone's interested. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Technics-...gAAOSwr81UPNXk

    I have an EPC-310MC on the way.
    Unfortunately it has a sapphire canti and a paratrace tip, but it should be good.

    I am keeping my eyes open for a 305 at a sensible price asthe TTDD does worry me.
