€2,055.00Price
    • Designer: Jonathan Carr
    • Builder: Yoshinori Mishima (final build, testing), Akiko Ishiyama (primary build)
    • Type: Medium weight, medium compliance, low-impedance moving coil cartridge
    • Stylus: Namiki microridge line-contact nude diamond stylus (2.5um x 75um), surface-mounted
    • Cantilever system: Solid boron rod with short one-point wire suspension, directly mounted into cartridge body
    • Body: Anodized aluminum
    • Coils: 3-layer deep, 6N high-purity copper, square-shaped permalloy former, 6.3ohm self-impedance, 9.5uH inductance
    • Output voltage: 0.6mV@5cm/sec., zero to peak, 45 degrees (CBS test record, other test records may alter results)
    • Frequency range: 10Hz ~ 50kHz
    • Channel separation: Greater than 30dB at 1kHz
    • Compliance: Approx. 12 x 10cm/dyne at 100Hz

    • Distance from mounting holes to stylus tip: 9.5mm
    • Cartridge weight (without stylus cover): 7.3g
    • Tracking force: 1.65g – 1.75g (1.72g recommended)
    • Recommended load directly into MC phono input: 97.6ohm ~ 806ohm (detailed guidelines in instruction manual, finalize by listening)
    • Recommended load via step-up transformer: Use a step-up transformer designed for 5 - 10 ohms cartridge impedance (step-up transformer’s output must be connected to 10kohm ~ 47kohm MM-level RIAA input, preferably via short, low-capacitance cable)
    • Recommended tonearms: Medium to Medium-High mass arms recommended, which is bulk of tonearm market
