FOR SALE: Shelter 90X MC cartridge and vintage Sony heavy Headshell
Listing includes the vintage SHELTER 90X cartridge boxed , complete with TDS. The vintage SONY long-heavy heashell is also included.
**** Only 5 hours use in total for testing purposes ****
Tested - Perfect working condition
90X is the flag model of the first product line of Shelter cartridges. It was set above any 901 models, as it features all the advantages of it's predesors, along with excess musicallity and bandwidth balance. It brings out a warm, solid sound character while showing no compromises to both ends of audio spectrum.
90X was supposed to be replaced by the newer Shelter 9000 model. Opinions over the web vary if the newer model managed to keep the solid, dynamic and balanced warm sound of the "original one" .
There are plenty of reviews over the web i.e. Vynil engine where 90X is found to perform exceptionally well with top analog systems.
Unfortunatelly this is long out of production, so as, here you are to get one, in like new condition, for plenty of joyful hours of music listening.
Set it up the correct way and it will perfom tones of music body and bass control.
This one was bought brand new at the end of '08 to join a system project that has never been accomplished. It was carefully kept boxed to a free of dust / humidity, space.
I have recently tested it and is indeed in pristine condition. Suspension works flowesly, as it should. Audio playback is also outstanding. Total 5 hours use.
