Van Den Hul Colibri XGP MC Cartridge (350 hours on clock)  [SOLD]

Postby Starwarsmike2422 » Mon Sep 17, 2018 6:52 pm

This is a rare chance to own one of the worlds best MC cartridges.

This cartridge retails around the £4000 mark. Grab yourself a bargain at £1200 or ONO.
Cartridge comes in it's 100% original packaging/screws etc. See photo. Also included in this listing is free Tracking force gauge, Onzow and VP stylus cleaner, plus brush

Please note, as per the photo. The cartridge has recently had it's 300 hour tuneup service by Van Den Hul himself. See signature on box. There are around 350 hours on the clock. This cartridge took around 300 hours to be at it's best. So you are buying a cartridge that has been fully broken in.


- Van Den Hul Colibri XGP MC Cartridge
- Tracking Force - 1.35g-1.5g
- Antiscate - 0.4g to 0.6g
- Arm Mass - 10g to 16g
- Load Imp - 50-500
- Output level - 0.38


Why am I selling? I have recently purchased a TAD D1000 CD/DAC, I am moving away from vinyl. I used the Cartridge with my SME 20/2 Turntable, and this cartridge digs up every single bit of detail there is. Incredible details and resolution, huge sound stage.
