A really great cartridge for the Accession MC I would like to recomend ist the Goldring Ethos. It sounds very natural, not beeing to bright. The build quality is really great in my opinion. Listening to live records like recordings in small jazz clubs is a real pleasure. I enjoy the combination Accession MC and Goldring Ethos very much. 

This combination brings light into the darkness!

Something of a 'dark horse' is the Goldring Ethos Smile, good things are said about it.

Ironic to call MCs the dark side when they have a reputation of a rising treble..

Comparing the Goldring Ethos to other great MC cartridges like VdH Colibri, Kiseki Purple Heart or Ortofon Cadenza Black, the treble is much more softer. Therefore my suggestion if you want to move to the dark side.  

The Goldring Ethos is a really great cartridge and a bargain compared to the cartridges I mentioned above.

I am just listening to „Ben Webster Meets Gerry Muligan“. What a great pleasure, listening with the Goldring Ethos.
I wish you all a happy Christmas.

If anyone has compared the Hana EL/H & SL/H your thoughts are welcome.
FWIW I've done 18 videos with a Hana EL which you can find here.

I'd also give a thumbs up for Soundsmith. I have a low output Zephyr but their high output models are great too.



Yes Bob, I’ve just discovered a couple of your vids with the Zephyr! Got me drooling you have, bad man LOL
I don't do mediocrity!
