    Default Transfiguration Axia

    I have a Transfig Axia for sale with less than 300 hours on it, looking for 600 or ono.

    your picture does not do the axia justice , it is a lovely thing , it is far better looking than my ZYX RC 30 II l .

    it is also a bargain - 34% of current uk price (1500)

    And IMO it has what all good moving coils should have, a boron cantilever with fine line diamond mounted on the end , so much better that an aluminium L shaped tube with a diamomd liz taylor would be proud of shoved through a hole near the end .

    Lots of things wear out. Tyres, engines, even records wear out. I got 6 years plus out of it so i'm not complaining.

    O dear tiu , I was being self deprecating not critiquing Mr Spaghettis purchasing decisions . As the father of 4 children the youngest who is 2 , I will be dead before I am able to spend 2.5k on a cartridge and I was thanking the existence of my children from making such purchasing decisions beyond my empirical experience now and forever

    So it's 2466 for something that gives a great deal of pleasure, not simply something that 'wares' out. I guess you were reminding yourself of that fact. How long can a good stylus last anyway?
