    Default Audio Note IQ1 cartridge

    This is a AN IQ1 mm cartridge, which was bought as a back-up and has had very little use (certainly less than 100 hours, most likely around 50). Comes with all packaging, etc. Retailed for 340 in 2017, selling for 180 (including insured delivery in UK).

    Better than a Goldring 1042 ime, I also prefer this to an IQ3 I had a few years back ... although I'm probably in a minority with that
    Works very well on old SME 3009 (non-improved) arm, or any 'normal' medium weight tonearm, for that matter.

    If I didn't have the Cartridge Man Music Master cartridge, I'd have nabbed this wonderful cartridge,
    at 180 is a no brainer.
    Someone is in for a total treat!

    Looks like a Goldring, but it ain't.

    Finer coil wires give better dynamic response. Slightly stiffer dampers give lower compliance to better suit 'normal' mid/high effective mass arms. Screw inserts allow easier and more secure mounting.

    170 collected from near M1-M6 junction. 180 UK delivered via RMSD

    Very nice cartridge ... not as fussy as a 2M Black ime.
