Shelter Harmony MC Cartridge

  • Sale
  • Regular price $4,900.00


New from Shelter! The Shelter Harmony has a body built from carbon-fiber, which greatly reduces resonance. But that’s not the only improvement, the aluminum cantilever is shorter, for added strength and a longer life. This simultaneously improves tracking, as well. Shelter also includes a carbon fiber disc to place between your LP and record clamp, for a much lower noise floor. The Harmony can draw out subtle nuances from your records and, at the same time, captures the realistic dynamic portrayal of natural sounding music like no Shelter before. The new Harmaony is a reference killer!

"The result is a cartridge that sounds exceedingly detailed and nuanced, yet not at all 'analytical', and that offers expressive, explosive dynamics. What is more, the Harmony MC is also one of the quietest cartridges I've heard, providing an underlying quality of 'stillness' that encourages you to ignore the transducer and focus instead on where the musical signal may take you. And that's the whole point." - Chris Martens, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2009, Issue 193, pg 52
