More Information

£119.00

Standard elliptical stylus model equipped with an elliptical bonded stylus. This reduces tracing distortion and allows for more accurate sound reproduction.

Instead of using a single, large magnet, the two magnets are arranged in the shape of a "V". The two magnets are positioned precisely to match the positions of the left and right channels in the stereo groove walls. Consequently, the VM design ensures outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking.

 Para-toroidal generating system

Para-toroidal coils improve generating efficiency and offers superb linearity, since leakage of magnetic flux in this continuous and unitised magnetic circuit is low. Permeability of the cores is also optimised through the use of laminated cores.

Centre shield plate reduces crosstalk

A permalloy centre shield plate enables the effective separation of left and right channels, suppressing electrical crosstalk to below 40dB. This is similar to the actual crosstalk value found in the grooves of the record itself.

500 Series

500 Series

Standard cartridge body fitted with the para-toroidal coils, centre shield plate, and 6N-OFC coil wire which is the same as 700 series.

Elliptical Bonded Stylus

Elliptical Bonded Stylus

Elliptical diamond stylus follows the groove modulation with greater precision compared to a conical stylus, offering improved frequency and phase responses whilst reducing distortion.

  • Tick Conical Bonded stylus for less critical tilt angle adjustment allowing more flexible use on various tonearms.
  • Tick VM type dual magnet design ensures outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking
  • Tick Lightweight tapered aluminium cantilever allows for faithful reading of the record groove
  • Tick Centre shield plate enables the effective separation of left and right channels, suppressing electrical crosstalk to below 40dB
  • Tick Durable low resonance polymer housing
