"Congratulations! The A3SV is a great bargain. I started playing through my Mercury monos (I have a complete collection of 1st pressings), some of my favorite Decca ED1 pressings, and some early Callas LPs. The sound is rich, spacious, and very dynamic (especially on the Mercs). When I play through more of my collection (all classical), I'll submit a detailed review. Again, congratulations on producing a cartridge in such a high class for so reasonable a price."2
