    Thank you, Marco.

    The ELACs are a little bit special, best results are given with the original stylus. But..... its not easy to find...
    I would say sounds similarly to an Ortofon SPU GM without the efforts of finding a suitable step up transformer and the look is sooo classical vintage....
