I'd also be interested to hear what some thought of these. I'm hoping to make a change of cartridge but don't have the budget to try a variety so I've been hoping to find a good solid choice. So far, the Soundsmith cart seems to be a very good choice but.....

Jimmy,
Very true...several have posted about the Soundsmith MIMC saying they are close but the Vas may be a bit smoother, not fatiguing at all. Very anxious to hear what others say!!
