Enhanced detail, crisper highs and extended bass.
I have been using this cartridge for the last two weeks and so far I am very impressed. I bought it to upgrade my Realistic cartridge on a Pioneer PL-55 turntable, and it is a solid improvement.
For starters, I'm hearing detail that wasn't being picked up with the old cartridge. The sound is brighter, and the bass is more pronounced without adding warmth to the sound.
I've also noticed the Grado seems to track better and doesn't skip near as much as my old cartridge, even on badly worn LPs.
I'm giving this a 5 star rating just for the immense value I got from it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable upgrade.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
