Audio Technica Studio Reference 8008 for $10

So- what are the odds of finding this for $12.99 (with 20% off) at the Goodwill today? First- and probably the last- time I'll see a decent TT cartridge at a thrift store- nice price too! Playing it right now- and it sounds mighty fine. Not quite as detailed as my AT440MLa, but it seems to punch up the 60's psychedelic rock LP's better. I like it!

wizargos: Completely new old stock or already used? If it's the former, I'm jealous - if the latter, not so much, as I've recently scored a NOS Ortofon 320U on the bay for 6 Euro. That's also a "universal mount" (i.e., a T4P/P-Mount that comes with additional half-inch-adaptor), but with a nude FineLine instead of the bonded LinearContact needle on the AT331LP/8008...

Greetings from Munich!
