If you are looking for a cartridge to for DJ or Heavy duty commercial / Professional applications, or your records are a bit "beat" and you need heavy tracking, or you wish to listen to 78's on your "good" table, then this is the cartridge you need. It's made to be abused! Yes it's more expensive than most (although it's not uncommon for cartridges to cost up into the $1000-$2000 range), but when compared to the time spent recording, listening to and caring for your albums overtime it's a good and reasonable investment. You won't be disappointed.
