The LP S may have been a former flagship cartridge for Benz Micro but it is still so good, it continues to thrash its rivals. The unit you see here was recently re-tipped by Soundsmith (a turntable specialist company based in New York) so it is like “NEW” in that sense where it has almost zero hours of use. Highly rated by both Stereophile Magazine and Absolute Sound, this is one of the great MC cartridges that is a an absolute BEST BUY. Output voltage is 0.34 mVwith an impedance of 38 ohms. Recommended loading is 500 – 47,000 ohms with a recommended tracking force of between 1.8 – 2.2 grams. The cartridge has some “weight” as compared to some of its competitors at 16.4 grams so your tonearm mass should be medium to high. We just recently sold a BRAND NEW unit for $3,500 so at nearly half off for a “technically” similar new unit, its a super bargain now.
We have the original box, papers and accs that come with it. It will be securely packed for safe shipping.
