We used it on the SME10 at HE2006 last month. Nice cartridge but I wouldn't dump the Helikon until you need a replacement. If you want a different sound consider a top line Benz.
I've had 2 dealers tell me the Skala is wonderful. Adds the warmth and dynamics that the Helicon (I own one) seems to be light on, but keeps all the detail and extension.
One dealer in Austin says it bests the Titan every so slightly, another dealer told me it's very close to the titan.
On your linn, that Akiva suggestion might be a good alternative. I'll likely order a Skala and post my findings in about 30-50 days.
Early results are VERY VERY positive. Nothing went down. Better detail, wider deeper stage, more impact/dynamics in the midrange, sweeter top end, but just as extended. Better height and space around the instruments.
Pretty much all around better. I'm wondering how it'll breakin.
Cool thing was...like NO overhand adjustment from my helicon. I screwed it on. Dropping on my overhand gauge and sat down right where the helicon did...
More posts this weekend....
