Product details

Michell Cusis M Moving Coil Phono Cartridge

Michell Cusis M moving coil phono cartridge is an end-game product that offers the audiophile an ultra-high-end listening experience at a cost that belies its ability. It's quite simply one of the most accurate and musical moving coil cartridges available at any price.

All of Michell's Cusis cartridges share the same moving coil design. At the heart of the cartridge is a samarium-cobalt magnet which is combined with pure iron to create a very stable magnetic field within the cartridge.

30μ pure copper wire is used to precision wind the cartridge coils onto an ultra-lightweight armature, which is mounted onto a specially designed damper. The damper has been specifically designed to give the stylus assembly the perfect support, which ensures the stylus tracks the groove precisely.

The number of coils, resultant output, and body material have all been optimized for each model’s stylus assembly to give the best possible audio output.

The construction of the cartridge has been carefully designed to eliminate vibration and resonance. The aluminum chassis is designed to absorb unwanted vibration and give a rigid platform to mount the cartridge parts.

The body materials, shapes, and exterior patterns have also been designed to reduce vibration and resonance further, resulting in truly unrivaled levels of detail and neutrality.
