I owned one of these in the past. I've since owned a Sumiko Bluepoint, Grado Reference Platinum, Ortofon X5-MC, and a ZYX R-100. Those are better, but FOR THE PRICE, you can't touch this cartridge in value. Highly recommended for entry level analog.

This Grado Black P-Mount Cartridge is better than my Shure M92E and any of the Audio Technica cartridges you'll find at most retailers. If your still using a turntable that only accepts P-Mount cartridges you wont be disappointed with this one.

One thing to note on this cartridge and all Grdado catridges for that matter, it picks up more of the 60hz "Hum" than most cartridges will, you'll notice this much more before the needle hits the record which at that point the Hum nearly vanishes.

Happy listening!!
