The MC201 is one of those truly exceptional MC cartridges that out punches its price bracket. Although it was listed for $1,000 when it was first launched, it was immediately pitted against cartridges that cost up to $3,000. That was how good it was. It has a very sweet demeanor and music flow was smooth and detailed. Very much like a Lyra cartridge. If you are looking for a comparable cartridge now, you would have to shop in the $1500-$2500 bracket.
This cartridge was lightly used previously with maybe 80 hours clocked in. Original box, manual and test result are included. The tip looks excellent (see pictures).
