I love mine. It came as a "throw in" mounted on the arm of a SSM reference table I got used. The seller did not know which model it was and refused to remove it from the arm to look for model number. He just called it an "unknown Grado woodbody cartridge." I removed it and had John Grado confirm what it was after the table arrived. I sounds glorious and has replaced a much more expensive Benz that I had been using. No need to say how well it does playing strings - Grado is known for that, but it is also images beautifully and has excellent imaging and bass detail as well. What I really like is that it "scales well" as my system improves generally in other ways such as adding in new cables and isolation platforms, it reveals only more musical goodness, rather than falling behind as the system improvements reveal more truth. My only concern with it is that I have no idea what to do when it eventually wears out. Grado's website seems to be claiming that retipping is not an option and should not be a problem since they offer "generous" trade-in allowances for buying a new one. Pretty scary stuff. I have been playing the hell out of it since June of 2012 when I got it, and I need to try to get a budget together for that, but I would hope that it can be repaired by one of the retipping shops such as Soundsmith when the time comes. For now, I am just enjoying the sound of a system that now sounds twice as good as I have ever dreamed of owning before, rather than borrowing trouble from the future.
