For Sale: Dynavector KARAT 23R Ruby Moving Coil Cartridge

This is an original Ruby Moving Coil Cartridge that has never been used and has zero hours on it. This is not a refurbished stylus but the new one I special ordered from Japan in approximately 1979.

It was mounted one time to test it briefly and assure that it survived shipping around the world. I waited quite a while for this one to arrive.

It is recognized as one of the most revealing phono cartridges in the world and audiophiles agree nothing sounds better unless you exceed $1,200. Which is what you can have this one for. I will include my signet SK305 ELECTRONIC STYLUS CLEANER from the same time period. It is in excellent condition.

Both items are in their original boxes.

If you want to hear the most information you can extract from a vinyl record album, these two are sure to please.

Note, this record cartridge is low output and it requires a pre-preamp or a head amp.

      NO, I have not parted with it. It is a new one stored for years after I imported it. Nothing sounds better unless you exceed the $1500 level. Re-tipped ones are going for $600 and up. I value it at $1200. This is the last of them. I don’t know of any others that are original in the box.

      Thank you for your interest

      Yes, I do and I am about to list it on Offerup.

      I guess folks don’t believe me when I tell them it is original and virtually new.
