The damper is perfect, no problems at all.

The F-9E has the ability to provide the finest reproduction of stereo records. The stylus is an elliptical NUDE TYPE (solid diamond) with Extended Range. This stylus is particually well suited for reproduction of 2-channel stereo and matrix 4-channel records. The Extended high frequency responce of the F-9E provides excellent CD-4 reproduction.
The musicality of this model is legendary, i am a big fan of the Grace cartridges myself. Loaded at 100k ohms (with correct cable capacitance) the Grace sounds spectacular in my system!
