No. But I'm pretty sure you just joined up so you could tell us about it. ;-)

Well, I could not help but notice that Nicecupoftea, much like Music_lovers, just registered on Audiogon, and this is his first post as well. Hmmmm.....
What do you think Dan_ed? You gonna run right out and buy one to try it out?
PS As a bit of advice to music_lovers, perhaps it might make sense, if you are trying to start up a buzz about your product, to offer a couple of these cartridges for a free trial to some of the better known analog aficionados on this site, (Rauliruegas, AlbertPorter and Dougdeacon come immediately to mind), and let them review them. (And of course you could offer them up to the professional reviewers, although I prefer to read what the audiophiles here on Audiogon and Audio Asylum have to say, as they are not getting paid for their reviews.).
My two cents worth anyway.
Actually I have been a member since 2000 but it never occured to me to post before, and it didn't occur to me that no-one would be interested in the cartridge, only about the intentions behind the post. There's something special about the cartridge but I am just listening to it and will maybe try others in the range. If anyone is interested please email me directly, I really don't want to offend anyone by posting more details here.
I managed to buy one of these cartridges for myself (not easy, I don't read chinese and relied on Babelfish).
As a side note, I took a look, and Nicecupoftea has been a member for a couple of years. (02-17-07 is the date listed as his being active.) And yet today was his first post ever.
Even more interesting, is the Music_lover has been a member even longer (heck, longer than myself), as his active date is 03-23-02. And again, he first post was today also.
I apologize for mistrusting you both, but I do have a question for both of you:
Do either of you remember your password from years ago, when you set up your audiogon account, when you've never needed it? (Neither of you have posted, nor bought or sold anything via Audiogon either - at least you have no feedback record, so you would never need to login.) I can barely remember passwords that I only use on a monthly basis, let alone one I only use once every year or so. Just curious is all!)
Just installed my MC5B in a freind's LP12 and his comment was "I'm hearing notes on my records I haven't heard before" and he wants to buy it from me right away.
Hopefully we will get the MC5 (bare) version and the very special - at least from the description - MC30, customized to perfectly match my Superline and ARO, to try in about a month. Will report back here.
