"...the bass from the Wellfleet was pleasing and articulate."
"...the likes of orchestral strings retain their energy and vitality."
"...at no point did I feel that the Wellfleet was running out of headroom,
no matter the demands put upon it."
"At first listen, I was immediately impressed by the high level
of detail retrieval that the Wellfleet is able to muster"
"What the Wellfleet does well is the seamless transition from the
upper mids to the highs without any break-up or shrillness,"
"Even when compared with more expensive cartridges, its wide bandwidth,
diligent detail retrieval, and ease of operation make it well worth an audition."
"..."It seemed a little more relaxed than the Songbird in how it conducted business,
but the soundstage was nicely set with clear demarkation of the instruments..."
“With the new assembly, excessive mass in the shank is cut away to reduce tip mass further,
resulting in a faster, more direct, and more accurate response of the stylus
movement by the cantilever and magnet.”
"If you are already equipped with a Sumiko Moonstone that's coming to the end of its life,
or indeed any of the Oyster range, the Wellfleet stylus upgrade will bring you even more
of the things you have enjoyed; I have no doubt."
