    Standard ≤ 2.5% | Grade 1 ≤ 1.0% | Grade 2 ≤ 0.5% | Grade 2 PRIME ≤ 0.1%

    Grade indicates stereophony performance much more so than tone. Zu performs extensive final testing and then grades them. Tolerance is measured between left and right internal impedance, full bandwidth phase, time-domain, and full bandwidth output curves. Tolerance spec’ is not an average of measures but accounts for the lowest of any measurement, thus giving a true tolerance perspective. Final grade is referenced to serial number, marked on the tests and measures sheet, and box label.

    need money to buy next cartridge $450 and $6 for shipping caint go any lower/ hell of a deal. This is what stereophile said about the entry level one . The Zu doesn't just slay giants: It rips their beating heart from their chests, shows it to them, finishes them off, then chases their souls and drags them down to hell. Recommended.

    This is VERY tempting, but I'm not sure any of my arms can handle the extra 5g from the Zu body mod without adding additional counterweight. How did you handle that @fastz28 ? I know the extra cartridge weight is one of the things that makes it sound better than a stock DL-103, so worth the effort is a person's rig can handle it.
