    Ive read here about certain carts that seem really finicky and sensitive to minute changes and think they are basically flawed. Put a heavier record on and vtf is off and sound quality changes, not for me. Been through MC carts up to £750 and now been a happy bunny with a Shure Ultra 500 for some time. Tracking force on the ultra is 1.9grms without the damper and 1.4grms with it if my memory serves me well. Not really a faff, just set at 1.9 and then use it with the damper, fantastic sound.

    Took your advice mate and ordered one, still hasn't arrived and i've been waiting 3 weeks, so that's £9.99 you owe me seriously though this is meant to be delivered from the UK, it pisses me off when ebayers disguise themselves like this claiming the item is in the UK when in actual fact it's in China

    I've had a few of them.

    What fascinates me is that we could just about cover the postage in the UK for £9.99, yet this is a product and postage all the way from China. How does that work ?

    Likewise! I contact them for a refund and tell them they are selling fraudulently. It's got such now that I always check the sellers address (despite claiming from UK somewhere) and if it's confirmed from far east I don't purchase......
