Benz Micro ACE SH Moving Coil

    This is tempting me. The retailers' blurb about it is impressive:   'The Benz ACE is one of our favorite budget phono cartridges. Based on the generator system and stylus assembly of the Benz Glider with a protective acrylic body, the ACE is a handmade cartridge, one of the only hand-built cartridges at this price point! This is a true music lover's cartridge, warm and natural through the mid-range, with great bottom-end extension and silky smooth high frequencies. If you just want to play record after record with a big smile on your face...the ACE is the cartridge for you! The Benz ACE is simple to install and is available in three different outputs to match any phono-stage.'

Does anyone know anything about this brand, and this cartridge in particular?

Yes, this one just has the dealers blurb.

I'd believe a dealer's blurb as much as I'd believe Avram Grant saying his team could beat Man U at old Trafford.

Still, it is a terrific cartridge.

Re: Benz Micro ACE SH Moving Coil

Yeah, sorry boys, i'm finishing off the rest of the Glenfiddich today, before starting the fitness thang tomorrow, so i'm a wee bit squiffy and put the post in the wrong section. Oops.

So, the general concensus is that, dealer hyperbole aside, it's a cracker? thank you fellas. You all have a good crimbo?
