RE: A waste of money...

Costs have certainly spiraled out of control in audio. A $12k grado cartridge is certainly evidence of that.

No matter the cost, it takes effort to find good sounding components that have synergy with each other. And, it takes effort and knowledge to set up a system properly.

There are many expensive components that aren't worth the cost and are a waste of money. However, there are expensive components that are worth the cost and sound sublime.

I've owned more than a few >$1000 cartridges. My benz ebony lps is definitely worth what I paid for it (I don't remember what that was but it was several thousand dollars.) It sounds incredible on my acustic raven 1 with graham phantom running into the steelhead.
