I received the cartridge today and have just set it up. I'll post more thoughts soon but I'm midway through the first side of a Berlioz LP and my impressions are that this cartridge is maybe slightly to the warm side of neutral. It needs time to break in and I will fine tune the alignment (I used the Conrad Hoffman Arc protractor) as soon as I receive an OEM alignment gauge for my turntable which is on the way. One thing I will say is that if you do order this cart, don't count on the included hardware to work with all headshells. I had to use an extra set of screws from a Shure cartridge to make it work as both sets of included screws were too short.
