LP GEAR CARBON FIDELITY CFT4PSE CARTRIDGE
- Music that makes you want to listen.™
Listen to the new voice of music. Carbon fiber composites offer 10 times the strength of steel at half the weight. Co-developed and designed with LP GEAR by Audio-Technica's best engineers, new Carbon Fidelity T4PSE Spectra Elliptical (CFT4PSE) cartridge benefits from the latest quality parts and materials technology featuring a super carbon fiber cantilever that respond to the most complex high amplitude attacks and transients as well as the most heavily recorded passages. The updated design, tight specifications, Twin-Flux™ magnets, high-quality moving system fulcrum and radial damping ring allied with a Spectra elliptical diamond tip produce music that makes you want to listen.
Mastered to illuminate in comparison to lofty cartridges beyond the economics of most listeners, the CFT4PSE touches and endears the more you listen. You won't want to go back to your underperforming or pricey cartridge. You'll hear, feel and sense the music exquisitely rendered — harmonically full-bodied, refractive and refreshingly crystal clean with luminous detail spatially radiating with realness. You'll experience remarkable note clarity, projection and nuanced tonal complexity previously unheard and unappreciated.1

Footnote 1: A high resolution system allows full experience of the nuanced tonal complexity offered by the Carbon Fidelity CFT4PSE.
Footnote 2: Carbon fiber composites offer 10 times the strength of steel at half the weight. Each producer's carbon fiber differs from those of its competitors, and the processing details are considered to be intellectual property. The special carbon fiber used in the Carbon Fidelity cartridges and styli is patiently and expertly considered for its signature characteristics to bring out the subtleties and finesse of music extracted from the grooves of records and LPs.
