My dealer in Austin can order them. I have an MC2 Finish. Special Order on Allaerts and they are usually hand built just for you. So might take a few months from order to deliver. PM me for dealer info if you want to pursue.
The MC2 Finish is an outstanding cartridge. I might even consider selling it b/c I've been thinking about a MC1 Formula.
My Allaerts MC2 Formula 1 arrived last week. I have about 30 hours on it. Jan says to give it 100 hours, readjust, and then enjoy for the next 10,000 hours.
What I can say now is this cartridge is different than the MC2 Finish. Just more of everything. It has a such a unique way of slowing down the tempo, but at the same time each note is quicker. It's a odd thing to describe. The net effect is it so effortlessly unravels the music, but at the same time more cohesive than anything I've heard before. The resolution is better than my Goldfinger Statement. A lot more to come as this gem settles in....I suspect it's still a bit reticent and time will allow it to bloom even more...
