features

  • The body is precision CNC machined from solid aluminum alloy and hard anodized.
  • Threaded body to accept the supplied stainless steel thumb screws for correct coupling of
    the cartridge body to the tonearm headshell.
  • Three specifically designed contact points CNC machined into the top of the body that provide the exact mechanical coupling required.
  • Alignment ridge on the front top that assists mounting XtraX to any Vertere tonearm.
  • The low-mass generator utilizes a Samarium-Cobalt magnet with a low-mass cross coil made of pure virgin copper wires.
  • The low-mass generator is mounted into the high-mass body using a Quad-Point Contact with Four Stainless’ Spike’ Screws for optimum support and control of unwanted mechanical vibrations.
  • The telescopic aluminum tube cantilever utilizing two different aluminum materials – maximizes stiffness without a massive high Q peak.
  • Nude Micro Elliptical single crystal diamond stylus tip for maximum tracking ability without compromising the high-frequency response or increasing surface noise.
  • Square shank diamond assembly maximizes alignment precision, consistency and rigidity.
  • Wideband frequency response of below 10Hz to 45kHz.
  • Output of 0.45mV will provide a lifelike dynamic range with depth and precision.
