Does anyone have experience with the relatively new Miyajima Destiny cart?

by all accounts it is meant to be something special - thinking of getting one.....

I've been using this cartridge for a while and am very happy with it, compared to my previous cart Ikeda Kai, it's more natural and balanced; compared to miyajima madake the bottom end clearly more solid and defined. I've also heard fuuga in a different setup though, the vocal is magical on fuuga but destiny is more to my liking for classical

This gets me excited! What tonearm are you using. I see you have luxman preamp, can you let me know about that as well. I am using Kuzma 4 point and Madake matches my tonearm really good. It seems destiny will match it too.

I'm using AMG Viella Forte turntable with AMG 12JTurbo arm, I've decided to dump my luxman EQ500 as it's no where close to Robert Koda MC1 phono in a direct comparison. Currently I'm trying MC1 maybe later Zanden 1200s, a phono upgrade seems to be unavoidable...the difference is just too big to be ignored.

Yes, if Madake matches your tonearm Destiny should be fine, it's a bit heavier though but I'm sure 4point should be able to handle.
