The Ultimate DIAMOND utilizes a State-of-the-Art cantilever design using a square diamond rod (□0.22mm). This creates a cantilever of low mass, the highest rigidity and superior dampening that allows the DIAMOND to track and respond to the most dynamic passage with great accuracy and extremely low resonance. In addition, this light and rigid diamond cantilever provides the quickest sound transmission of any material, allowing the fastest time response of the magnetic circuit.
Lapis lazuli Balancing Weight
A spherical object fixed to the front nose of the cartridge is a balancing weight to accord the sweet spot of the cartridge body and the gravity point of vibration system. Having checked up materials and repeated audio monitoring, a nonmetal Lapis lazuli ball having hardness 5.0, specific gravity 2.5, diameter 8mm, and weight about 1 gram is put in at the most appropriate position to form the best cartridge structure. The Lapis Lazuli ball has another important merit than centroid control. Due to its composition blended of a few kinds of sodalite having spherical shape, vibrating wave flown from the north pole of the ball is absorbed in the crystal architecture mingled inside, and vibrating wave running down the ball surface is finally cancelled at the south pole of the ball.
Composite Carbon Terminal Board
This world-first hard terminal board has been employed as the terminal board to lock up output terminal pins and statically holds the unit against any sorts of extraneous vibrations.
And besides this terminal board can be grounded to the phono-stage amplifirer through the ground line of right channel output.
You must listen the purest sound by eliminated capacitance between 4 terminal pins.
Cartridge Case For REAL STEREO
Item 11,12 and 13 of the vital design points make very complex demand of the body's electrical properties. Non metallic body which has two kinds of hard material is necessary in order to achieve these properties, and to prevent external disturbances from influencing the generator system and also it prevents eddy currents in the case from effecting the generator output signal and the resonance occuring on the body surfaces.
Super High speed reproduction engine
This circuit is specially processed to null magnetic resistance within magnetic gap, and enables high speed power generation against signals over entire bandwidth straightly without time delay. And besides this circuit can perfectly eliminate any eddy currents remaining at once.
The stylus used Ultimate series has the edges of the diamond shank set parallel to the sides of the cantilever. Using this type of stylus, the hardest axis of the crystal is aligned to act as the contact point with the record groove. This gives stable and smooth tracing and produces a very refined sound, with the additional benefit of giving the stylus an extended life time 2000 hours.
The stylus is of the Micro-ridge type, which was originally developed in Japan and offers the highest performance. The contact radius is always 3μm by the ridge made with 6μm thickness.
Pure 6N OFC Crystal Copper Wire Generator Coils
This perfect crystal copper wire produced by special process, in order to achive an even sound balance across the entire audible range.
Pure Silver Wire Generator Coils
As the silver has the best conductivity, This 5-nine silver wire made in USA can easily sound extended high range smoothly and transparent mid and low range with excellent sound quality.
Pure Gold Wire Generator Coils
This K24 gold wire is made in USA. Why are the sounds so real, natural and smooth over the whole range? There is no coloration at the sound at all. So you will be able to feel real piano, strings and vocal sounds just front of you.
