The Argo i replaced the discontinued Lydian Beta as Lyra's entry-level cartridge when it originally came out. The Argo i made tremendous strides in sonic performance, trackability and ease of setup.
"I cant think of too many better ways to spend $1500 upgrading an analog front-end than buying a Lyra Argo i. While Lyra makes three more expensive and probably better-sounding cartridges, the Argo i is the top of the line for audiophiles like me who don't have the big bucks to spend. It doesnt just let you have a taste of what its bigger brothers offer; it lets you sit right down at the same table. It simply makes listening to music more enjoyable by bringing you closer to the recording itself, and I cant think of a greater compliment to pay this fine cartridge than that." - John Crossett, soundstage.com
