Grado Reference Sonata (RS) high end Moving Iron Cartridge in very good condition, high output phono cartridge. This cartridge plays and performs very well. Inspection under microscope shows the diamond is in very good condition. Approximately 450 hours, 1/4 or less of lifespan with proper care and cleaning. This cartridge has been taken out of service, replaced by a low output cartridge. Excellent sounding with warmth and detail as a premium cartridge should. Compatible with most Moving Magnet phono stages. 4.8mv output.

Includes 2 proper allen head screws with proper thread male for wood body are included with cartridge. Depending on head shell or specific tone arm setup, different length screws may be required. Recommend only screws compatible with Grado wood body cartridges to avoid stripping female threads. Does not have original box, will be packed very carefully for shipping.

Video shows cartridge performing with full dynamic range out of both speakers on high end system when mounted to Linn table (Will need to click on second link to watch on Youtube directly). Very nice sounding cartridge:
