Tiger Eye Platinum Cartridge

Tiger Eye Platinum features among therarest, most fanciful stone bodies to ever grace a phono cartridge. Of course, calling this a mere cartridge doesn't do this miraculous-sounding instrument justice. Peel your eyes away from its jewel-like beauty for a moment and view it as your permanent personal-seat license for a fifth-row, dead-center perspective on the world's most treasured recordings. The soulful, immediate, natural, and thoroughly absorbing performance you'll both hear and see – courtesy of pinpoint-precise focus, architecturally rendered dimensions, even-order balances, sublime harmonics, and true-to-scale imaging – is honestly better than what you'll find in almost any venue.

Indeed, this ultra-special cartridge invites you to dim the lights, pour a glass of Bowmore 25-year-old, close your eyes, and escape to special places very few have ever had the privilege to enjoy. Stay for as long as you like. Hand-crafted with a scare stone body that contributes to the sonic mystique, Tiger Eye Platinum features a hardness and rigidity that make it a superior tracker. Silver-clad six-nines copper wiring (99.9999% pure), rare platinum-alloy magnets, and a precision-ground stylus complete an opulent cartridge that exists to deliver the sort of musical expressiveness and analog sorcery upon which myths are created.
