Not everything that's good has to be expensive

Ed discovered this little guy back around 2003.  It is what is known as an OEM product (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and who ever wants to order a bunch has their name put on it, puts it in their box and retails it as their cartridge. It has been sold as the Empire 105 & 205 LT, the Sanyo MG-29, Kenwood V51, Fisher 55D and more. Compare it to the Goldring Elan below for example. 

What Ed decided to do was instead of spending money to stamp his name on it and money on a fancy box, he'd just leave it alone and pass the savings along to you.
