You could check out the Grado's on Ebay. New they have several under $100.

Thank you Gregg!

They seem to be good, though I canĀ“t find any detailed technical specifications, regarding channel separation, frequency response at -1dB, -3dB.

Do you have or know anybody satisfied with these?


Cheers!

Miguel

Hi Miguel, I regularly use Grados (prestige silver and reference platinum). Go to the Grado site and they have the specs. Be aware though that all Grados are unshielded and will often pick up hum from unshielded turntable motors. Also their magnets (like many other cartridges) will "pull down" on ferrous platters. My personal thought would be to go for a Denon DL110. I have one as a back up and it is surprisingly good. New price is a little over what you said at about $130, but you may be able to get some discounts on them. It is a high output moving coil and is designed to work into 47K MM inputs.

Good listening
Bruce
