Conical stylus, 1/2 inch type mounting.
The cartridge is perhaps the most important component of your whole audio system. The cartridge converts the vibrations of the stylus into audio signals, which are amplified in the rest of your system. Hence, the cartridge determines largely the quality of the sound that you hear. What doesn’t go in, doesn’t come out. For that matter, selecting a cartridge is vital for your listening pleasure.
In order to provide excellent sound reproduction at a modest price, Tonar has launched the Tonar Flip-series of cartridges with high end models available to suit all budgets. The Tonar 1⁄2 inch standard mount Flip cartridges are now also available with a hyper- elliptical or with a Shibata stylus tip. These cartridges offer excellent sound reproduction in the higher frequency ranges. The use of the Shibata tip also reduces record and stylus wear to the absolute minimum.
If you are in doubt which cartridge is best for you, don't hesitate to contact us. We are happy to give you personal advise depending on your setup and wishes.
