Using our cascading approach to product design, the Ionic low output Moving coil cartridge has many of the outstanding features of our flagship model.
Keeping true to the original design principles, the true essence of our Reference Ruby is embodied within the Ionic.

Ionic features the same approach to removing vibration away from the critical record stylus interface and using the same 5-axis CNC machined cartridge body allows vibration to pass into the tonearm rather than feeding back to the cantilever assembly, reducing the commonly heard 'needle-talk'.

Despite this being our entry model, we have managed to retain the same magnet assembly and coils, keeping cantilever dynamic inertia low, reducing the potential risk of record damage and making sure surface noise is low.

With the Ionic moving coil cartridge on your turntable, you are guaranteed an outstanding musical performance from all your vinyl, bringing life and realism into your living room.
