My Cartridges

Fidelity Research Cartridge

The MC-202

Thanks to its slim design, the stylus of the MC202 has a mass 50% lower than that of the styluses used previously in Fidelity Research moving-coil cartridges. The MC202 is a 'pure moving-coil' cartridge that uses no permalloy or other magnetic material in its cross armature, yet it still has a high output of 0.17 millivolts. The reason for this is that the mass of the armature has been reduced, enabling coils with a greater number of turns to be used.  I use this with the Fidelity Research arm. 

Denon Cartridge
The DL103D

I use this with the Grace 714 arm.

Grado Cartridge
The Sonata & Platinum

The Platinum and Sonata models use a modified four piece OTL cantilever technology achieving a 10% tip mass reduction over the Prestige series and ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils. The Platinum model uses Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing, and the Sonata model uses Grado's specially designed nude elliptical diamond. This works best on my Mayware Formula IV arm.
