Audio Note IQ3

Recommended Posts

Hi team,


I am wondering if anyone has had experience with the Audio Note IQ3 cartridge.?


Am considering and researching an upgrade from my Ortofon 2M Black and want to stay in the MM stable or HOMC as my Mcintosh C2200 is MM only and I dont want to introduce extra components (extra phono or SUT) at this stage. 


When cruising the Interwebs I found some very positive chatter about this cart (https://www.audionote.co.uk/iq3) and a review which was very positive where the reviewer preferred it to the 2MB.


So I thought worth asking our great stereonet community if anyone has heard/owned one and what were their impressions?


Rest of setup is a RB330 on a Michell Gyrodec.


All info welcome!

Be keen to hear from people who have had experience with this cart 😊

Hi Drew,


I've been using one on my Rega RP10 for about a year now and its sounds very good to me. I had it set up by the distributor of Audio Note here in Sydney. I've also heard it on his Audio Note TT2 and it sounded excellent also.  I can't say how it compares to the Ortofon 2M Black as I have no experience with it.


Let me know if there is anything specific you want to know.
