The VAS Nova Special Cartridge with Aluminum FG 2 Stylus is a Moving Coil cartridge designed by Steve Leung of Vinyl Audio Science (VAS).

"I have found a new love. Smooth beautiful music with power, speed, detail, soundstage (measures 31 db separation), and none of the MC hyper detail that is never in live music. I just listened to Gary Karr and his Contra Bass and can only tell you it plums the depths of that recording like an Atlas for 1/10 the price. Very quiet, very low surface noise, and a rich full upper bass lower midrange that makes cellos, basses, oboes, pianos, sound real, not thin but detailed...it sounds so musical, so right, so enjoyable it is not coming off my arm. I think it is a steal at the price." - Harry Weisfeld, VPI
