This cartridge was previously installed on a McIntosh MT10 turntable that was a DEMO unit at a dealership. Hours of use on it is about 180 hours so there is still lots of life left. In the mid-price range category, it is easily one of the better sounding MC cartridge. The body is made from ebony wood and the cantilever is boron with a Micro HD diamond stylus. Weight is 10.8 gram with an output of 0.5mV. Cartridge may have the McIntosh inscribed on it but it is actually a Clearuaudio Talisman V2 that has been “optimized” for the MT10 turntable.
Cartridge will be securely packed for safe shipping.
