The low-mass Stradivari has a body of aged ebony and coiled wound with 24K gold. It's low-to-medium compliance boron cantilever, fitted with a micro HD stylus, tracks at about 2.8gm . The Stradivari traded the Koetsu Vermillion's lush romantic sound for at "leaner, smoother, more literal translation of the recorded of the event." It's "decidedly smooth, liquid sheen" produced a "satisfying sense of musical reelection without inducing boredom," said MF. Just squeaks into Class A. Requires 60 hours of break-in.

Stradivari is synonymous with the absolute master class of creating musical instruments. Our moving-coil cartridge named after the maestrissimo allows a 90dB dynamic range from vinyl. Long-stored old ebony wood provides both resistance against resonances and an excellent well-balanced sound.
