This patented technology is unique in history of MC-cartridges and allows supreme detail resolution and at the same time an extremely natural sound. It took us more than three years to solve all problems in manufacturing this micro part and we carefully protect the secret in how we do it.
The coil material - copper or silver with high purity grade - defines the tonal characteristic of the different X-quisite models. The winding technology is specifically adapted to the ceramic coil-body.
The ironless coil-design of the X-quisite transducer requires a strong magnet circuit in order to achieve reasonable output voltage. It took us many prototype setups and listening sessions before we found the perfect solution to be a Neodym-Armco combination with special measures to reduce eddy current loss to an absolute minimum.
The magnet is entirely built into an aluminium-holder, ensuring the mechanical energy-flow between tonearm and transducer to be as direct as possible. Between tonearm and cartridge, a carefully matched wooden inlay balances the resonance-properties of the contact area.
The body is milled out of a massive block and its material is sonically carefully matched to the characteristic of the different models.
