ZYX Ultimate 4D Cartridge :
This composite carbon fiber is more rigid than aluminum, iron and titanium. In addition, its specific gravity is just half that of boron. Therefore we can be sure that the C-1000 carbon cantilever is the ultimate and ideal cantilever material for analogue record playback.
The overall result is that you will enjoy the finest, most natural, most dynamic and true to source sound that you have ever experienced.
Item 11,12 and 13 of the vital design points make very complex demand of the body's electrical properties. Non metallic body which has two kinds of hard material is necessary in order to achieve these properties, and to prevent external disturbances from influencing the generator system and also it prevents eddy currents in the case from effecting the generator output signal and the resonance occuring on the body surfaces.
This circuit is specially processed to null magnetic resistance within magnetic gap, and enables high speed power generation against signals over entire bandwidth straightly without time delay. And besides this circuit can perfectly eliminate any eddy currents remaining at once.
The stylus used Ultimate series has the edges of the diamond shank set parallel to the sides of the cantilever. Using this type of stylus, the hardest axis of the crystal is aligned to act as the contact point with the record groove. This gives stable and smooth tracing and produces a very refined sound, with the additional benefit of giving the stylus an extended life time 2000 hours. The stylus is of the Micro-ridge type, which was originally developed in Japan and offers the highest performance. The contact radius is always 3μm by the ridge made with 6μm thickness.
This perfect crystal copper wire produced by special process, in order to achive an even sound balance across the entire audible range.
As the silver has the best conductivity, This 5-nine silver wire made in USA can easily sound extended high range smoothly and transparent mid and low range with excellent sound quality.
This K24 gold wire is made in USA. Why are the sounds so real, natural and smooth over the whole range? There is no coloration at the sound at all. So you will be able to feel real piano, strings and vocal sounds just front of you.
