Good replacement cartridge for my project Debut turntable. An improvement of the previous cartridge.
John Abraham –
I decided to replace the Om5 with this and I have been happy. This cartridge helps the overall tonal quality by keeping it warm and the spacial details sound is a definate improvement.
A good replacement to the damaged Rega stylus. Overall a good soundstage and details. Bass was better than the old cartridge. I have the previous generation Rega P1 turntable,
Pritam Mukesh –
Sounds excellent. Fairly forgiving. Not too expensive. Tracks well and sounds great. I like the lively sound.
