The Vessel A3SE Ultimate SET

"LP Gear's The Vessel A3SE cartridge is an absolute world-beater at $99. To say I was wowed is a huge understatement, and I very clearly preferred The Vessel A3SE to a lot of $400 cartridges I have tried before. The presentation is slightly forward in perspective, with sound that is silky-smooth, rich, clean, precise and detailed, with beautiful tonality from deepest bass to highest treble. The superlatives just flow when describing it, just as beautiful music flows from this exceptional cartridge." - Don Lindich, Sound Advice Q&A Newspaper Column"1

The A3SE sounds priceless

The Ultimate headshell extends further the A3SE's nuanced midrange and delicate highs. The dimensions and facets of the human voice are rendered like no other cartridge I've heard before regardless of price. Goose bumps galore.
