    I had a demo many years ago and it is a good cartridge. I would arrange for an extended home demo to see if it works with your system

    In that case the question is can you afford to make a bad choice. The cartridge might work perfectly, okay or badly but it would cost a lot of money to find out.

    What cartridge are you currently using

    Many moons ago we used to run Grasshoppers and a derivative they built for Roksan in the Xerxes table and the SME V and IV were often used.

    I thought with Van den Hul you could let them know what Tonearm/Table you were to use the cartridge in and they would 'tune it' for you.

    Best regards
