"The Deft 2 is wonderful. I still love the sound of it and have it mounted in my one and only head shell." - Jim Fosgate
LP Gear introduces the Harmonic Opulence DEFT 2 phono cartridge, a performer of remarkable simplicity and genius. The nomenclature says it all. In harmony with music, it sounds organic and real as music played in real time and space.
In his extensive review of the DEFT 2 in Dagogo, Phillip Holmes concludes that he can't imagine better sound at the price.1
