The Benz LP-S is the most technically advanced design from the famed Swiss manufacturer. Housed in a special, limited edition, aged ebony body; the LP-S differs from other world-class cartridge designs in that it is supremely musical. We have never heard any cartridge that matches the LP-S's warmth and natural portrayal of instruments.
The LP S-Class incorporates a high-mass brass frame for improved coupling to tonearms, an evolved ruby square plate generator and an Ebony body. The LP S-Class has 50% more mass than the previous model for enhanced vibrational and resonant characteristics, thus revealing greater dynamic contrast, deeper bass and increased resolution from all records.

I replaced my Benz Micro Ruby Z with the LP S and while it is still breaking in, it has already proven to be a big step up from the Ruby. More dynamic, wider sound stage, better bass and highs, more inner detail, and no etch. Everything across the board was improved. It is also sonically neutral, giving you only what is in the grooves. Nothing hyped up to make things more exciting than they should be.IMHO this is one of the top cartridges out there, but be sure to align it properly to get the best out of it.

You will hear a whole new LP collection. Weight of cartridge means you may need heavier counterweight, so bear this in mind. Stunning sound.
