Audio Note IO1 cartridge and dedicated Tim de Paravicini SUT.

The cartridge was fully rebuilt by Audio Note in 2019. Since that time it was used on my SME V for less than 50hrs to check it over before being returned to its box and has sat there through the pandemic. A copy of the paperwork to confirm the rebuild from Audio Note will be included.

Also included is a custom copper wound dedicated SUT from Tim de Paravicini. Housed in ‘The Head’ TX4 case but specially wound for the IO with something like a 1:80 ratio I believe.

I am only interested in selling these as a pair.

I am looking for £3200 for the pair inc UK delivery

0.04mV @ 5cm/sec or 0.057mV @ standard 3.54cm/sec , you actually would need a SUT with this cartridge as not many MC stages are capable to hold low SNR figures at required amplification factor

Which is why I am selling the cartridge with an appropriate SUT. There are only a limited number of options available.

This is quite special and could be an upgrading opportunity for someone. There are a number of IOs - just wondering which one this is..
The IO needs a dedicated step up so this COMBO merits serious attention.

Alas I'm not in a position to entertain this financially, but this is the next step, but one which I have to resist.

I recall i_should_coco telling me he built his system around the IO cartridge. That's not to be taken lightly. Of course Ive heard it at his place..

Take5 ran a thread about his IO rebuild - worth trying to find that in the Archive.
