Great all rounders. I use these for home listening to my different vinyl 7", 10", 12" and LPs. They give very nice basically hifi quality sound from both stereo and mono records old and new. The tracking ability of them is great and I never have any skips even with very rough third world pressings. They don't cause over wear of vinyl either, some records I have played hundreds of times with them and they still sound just as good. Compared to the others they are a bit expensive but with the quality and versatility overall they are definitely worth it.
