Listened to the MCBee cartridge today on a SOTA Jewel table. Arm was Sota S300, phono stage Simaudio as well as 47Labs Shigaraki. Amplification by Sim and Edge, speakers PMC (cant remember model but they were big!). Cartridge in this set up was really good. Clear with plenty of PRaT. Sounded best with Shigaraki phono stage, but due an annoying ground loop problem with the Shigaraki the Sim was a good competitor. This set-up was much better than a Clearaudio Solution, Denon DL103r with same phono stages. So whilst I didnt swap out the cartridges, the MCBee was impressive on its own.
