    The internal impedance of 7 ohms is very high. The Supreme is only 1 ohm. There is also going to be one above the Supreme called the Magnum Opus or something. Valin and Fremer have beta versions or prototypes.

    One should not worry too much about cartridge DC resistance. It's the overall design that counts. Ortofon MC Anna is 6 ohms, for example.

    I would very much like to hear this cartridge. One big plus for me is that it has decent output. The fact that is utilizes a MR stylus is also promising.

    Anyone try one of these yet? There is very little information about it on the web.

    You're referring to a different cart, PC-1 Magnum Opus. This thread is about the PC-7.

    So, has anyone dug up any more information on these?
    So far, I've read that this cartridge is exuberant like the Lyra Delos, which happens to be my all time favorite which is why I'm looking at the PC7.
    Nonetheless, information is extremely scarce at best.
    There seems to be only a couple of sellers and they're all all asking the high figure.
    Surely there must be an owner out there that give an impression or comment?
    P.S. Although I thoroughly enjoy the Delos top end, I have been considering the Decca Super Gold, but, it almost scares me regarding its attributes and use.

    Has anyone yet purchased this cartridge?
    I'm still trying to hear any sort of qualifying reviews. Julie over at TAS still hasn't reviewed it although she said that she would months ago.
    This cartridge seems to big such a big mystery, why?
    I'm looking for something that sounds close to the Lyra Delos but with more of what the Delos offers.
