I'll hold my judgements until I get 50-100 hours on it. So far it's nice, but almost precisely at 10 hours a slight amount of high frequencies opened up, so it clearly needs some time. I have it mounted on a Prime, signal goes to a K&K step-up transformer then to a Dynavector P75 MkIII.

My experience with the ML is that it does sound somewhat closed in until it’s run for a while.

In spite of the current "darkness" while this breaks in, I had side 2 of Alan Parsons Project "I Robot" on last night and geez, what a nice soundstage. Instruments just floating free of the speakers and sounding natural. From there, went to Heart's Dog & Butterfly, also side 2 (can you guess my age yet?) and I gotta say this cartridge has a nice musical presentation. My Lyra Delos is here, and am waiting to get it rebuilt, but I am not in a hurry. They are very, very different cartridges for sure. Will continue to just get hours on this and enjoy the ride.
