    Thank you.
    It really is. Not cheap I know but a true classic cartridge in A1 spec. TBH in my current setup my DL-S1/AU-S1 just hits the sweet spot and if I sell the Briar Iíll likely buy another DL-S1 as a spare (Iím really not a very good salesman am I?)

    So, what's wrong with it?

    I had an original well worn example that Jimmy Hughes had used almost to death back in the mid 80's. Toppy, thin, no real 'music' despite it sounding so wonderful in Jimmy's Zeta. I played around with VTA and BANG, it all snapped into focus, surface noise all but disappeared (different to the overdamped 'smothering' that early Koetsu's did on comparison) and i think I can say that it was the best sound from vinyl I ever had until the Decca/Mentor came along.

    I appreciate this one isn't as made, and the diamond fitted is fussier on alignment considering the Brier models can't easily be aligned. The next user MUST be prepared to tweak a little and maybe give the rebuild time to settle back in. Hopefully you'll be entranced as I was until I had to give it back to the importer.

    Good luck.

    Mmm! I think thatís a positive recommendation!
    Absolutely nothing wrong with it - it is as you describe. I need to move it on to fund other stuff and as I say the DL-S1/AU-S1 floats my boat.
    If it doesnít sell Iíll likely add it to my estate for the kids to inherit

    Looking at the cartridge, does it come fitted into a 'G' type headshell?
    It looks a stunning cartridge...but I know absolutely nothing about the brand.

    Hi - it's currently in the Fidelity Research headshell that it left the factory with. However, it can be easily removed from the FR and fitted into any headshell as shown in the photo.
    As per info about the brand DSJR's post is very insightful - also check out the vinyl engine cartridge database.
    Hope this helps.
