Easily our most ambitious moving-magnet (MM) cartridge to date, the Amethyst features a nude line-contact stylus and an upgraded generator assembly providing ultra-low noise, breathtaking dynamics, and exceptional trackability. This unique setup takes advantage of the powerful electromotive forces inherent to MM cartridge designs that help give your playback some punch, while still outperforming most comparable moving-coil cartridges.
