Selling one pair of the renowned Grado DJ200 hi-fi DJ cart. Search the forums around here and you'll learn all you need to know about these remarkable carts—arguably one of the only that can be called both audiophile and suitable for DJ use.
These have had very little use. I probably put a total of 4-5 hours of listening in on them at most so the tips should still be in wonderful shape. Had to switch to different carts to suit the preferences of someone sharing the set-up.
Grado 200's sell for $120 each new (see Needle Doctor link below). You can have the pair for $120.
Posted here for a limited time before they go on eBay.

Grado DJ200 Details
Grado Labs announces the release of their new DJ series of professional phono cartridge. Built and designed to meet the demanding needs of the professional DJ musician, these cartridges deliver performance never known before in the pro DJ market. The Grado specially engineered transmission line cantilever allows for the ideal transfer of music signal and for safe and effective stylus back-cueing. The DJ series can track from 2 to 5 grams, and delivers the warm musical Grado sound the audio industry has embraced and enjoyed for 50 years. The DJ series incorporates our newest Flux-Bridger generator systems for lower effective tip mass and lower electrical inductance. Each DJ series cartridge is hand assembled to Grado's high standards, which contributes to the unchallenged consistency of performance, and the Grado guarantee of reliability. The DJ series of cartridges are the most advanced phono pickups ever offered to the professional DJ market, without exception. Cartridges are packed by themselves. Stylus replacements are packages with two replacements. The Prestige model DJ200 uses a modified four piece OTL cantilever technology, oxygen free wire in the coils and a specially designed, high polished, diamond mounted in a brass bushing.
Hand-Built in the USA With 100% Quality Control
Each individual cartridge manufactured by Grado is hand assembled and tested for frequency response, channel output, channel balance, phase linearity, inductance and resistance. This meticulous care in design and construction lavished on each Grado cartridge contributes to an unchallenged consistency of performance and guarantee of reliability.
